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!

Completely remodeled Show Place Movie Theater. Must see Mural commissioned to be painted by Local artist, Paul Geiger, feathering many Stars that once preformed there. Today you can see old movie's at a reasonable price along with Jazz Bands. Check schedule for activities. (

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.

The Valentine is host to the Toledo Opera and numerous other artistic events for adults and kids alike. There are no bad seats! The Opera scrolls an English translation below the performance in a way that enhances, but does not distract from the performance. Frankly, it' perfect! The Valentine is located right downtown Toledo, just a block from One Seagate... More

Took my Goddaughter to see Its a Wonderful Life at the Valentine. Had a great time. Haven't been there since I was a kid. Its really nice. Cost $5 to get in and they had adult beverages to drink at intermission. Wonderful to see classic movies on the big screen.

I love the look of this theatre. It has so much class & old time elegance and it is so small and quaint. It is very much worth getting dressed up for to see a show there. Even though the downtown area doesn't look it. This theatre is in a very nice area

It doesn't matter where you sit--you'll have a good seat! The place is clean and comfortable. It's the perfect place to enjoy an historic venue and still have every convinience that you need.
