This beautiful 1920's vintage concert hall has had many transformations from a Vaudeville Hall, Movie Palace, 1960's Rock Venue, and to the now refurbished home of the Oregon Symphony. The acoustic is as good as the best halls of the world and ther is hardly a bad seat in the house.

Love the interior, which has been kept as classic old-time Portland. There is not necessarily a bad seat in the house. Parking can be sketchy. If you can take MAX, I highly suggest it. Great list of shows on their website. You can catch dinner and then a show, as it is located close to many great restaurants and food... More

Have been going there for many years to enjoy music/concerts ranging from Itzak Perlman to Ian Anderson (rock band Jethro Tull) to the stage performance of WICKED. Lovely building, the best acoustics, located right next to the 4 star Heathman Hotel---make a weekend of it!!!

We've been to this incredible concert every one of the 16 years they've been performing it! A truly joyous and spiritual Christmas experience. The Oregon Symphony and local choir voices blend into an uplifting sound. The theater is specactularly renovated to the rich, old theater style. Every seat is a good one.

Won a ticket to a show and it was great! The venue was just the right size for a small group. The restaurant service was good and food was yummy. Enjoyed some cocktails before the show and was able to get a 'to-go' cup to bring a drink to the show!

This was such a delightful performance to take our six-year-old granddaughter to; she knew all the songs and loved dressing up in her favorite Disney costume - Brave! The live singers complimented the orchestra perfectly along with the big screen excerpts from a lot of the Disney classics! Such a magical night! Get your children and Go if you can... More

Attached to the Heathman Hotel and a very good live concert Hall. Working with the Portland Symphony on a Pop's date and they are talented, inviting and professional. Concert hall is a good hall for live music.

It's a gorgeous venue and has great sound. The seats can be a bit tricky on the mezzanine and balcony for tall people though.

You won't see metal shows here, but if you can catch a favorite performer here, it's something you shouldn't miss. The acoustics and architecture are stunning. It's a little stuffy--but I roll that into the fancy atmosphere. Even seeing A Perfect Circle (normally I see Symphonies) was stellar.
