We frequent and support the Valentine Theater. It is simply beautiful and I love how they are contributing to the rejuvenation of Toledo. I am not sure it will work, as Toledo is in the typical Detroit slide... but this place is awesome. the staff are great. They always have great attractions. We have seen a few ballets, musicals, etc.... More

The Valentine is a beautiful facility. Located in Downtown Toledo. There is a parking lot across the street, that you have to pay to park, but it is convenient.

Its one down fall is shear size.. Just to small to be grand. Quaint, fresh, historic, charming, all great things.. A great place to see a play, just not big enough to bring in bigger acts.. Truly a Toledo gem, so glad they restored a rusting away icon

Always one of Toledo's gems, so glad they renovated it to keep the tradition going. Love the old movie nights. Beautiful setting for a pleasant outing.

The Valentine Theatre is a beautiful place to go in downtown Toledo. The smaller size of the auditorium allows everyone to have a great seat. The schedule at The Valentine has something for everyone including classic movies at a small price, and productions for children. A large parking lot is just across the street and easily accessible.

This vibrant, beautiful setting for the performing arts has a fantastic mural of great performers who have graced it's stage. Arrive early to view this gargantuan painting and pick out your favorite stars of yesteryear. The Valentine is far superior to the Stranahan in the quality of its seating and every seat has an excellent view of the stage.

This is a beautiful and historic theater, without a bad seat in the house. Been to three shows here, and a wedding, and the building continues to amaze me!

My husband and I recently visited the theater for a comedy show. The theater is very old, but has been completely renovated. It's beautiful inside and not very large so there really is not a bad seat in the place. If you've never been there and you love the old style theatres, you really should check this one out!

The facility is beautiful and the high quality performances range from opera to comedy to jazz to classic movies, and more. The size creates a much more personal experience than larger theaters. Another great community resource for Toledo.
