It is the only surviving theater building on Broadway. I has a balcony and box seats. I like to sit towards the back middle in the orchestra section. It was... More

This is a gorgeous space with very good acoustics. I have been to many performances here, both music and spoken word, and it is a very good venue for both. It is also easy to get to via Portland's excellent public transit.

I have seen many events here over the years and you can't beat the size, sound and atmosphere. From Rock shows, to Classical, to Speakers to Dance. This is a great place to see a show.

We absolutely love this building, the acoustics are unbelievable, I have never attended a concert here that was'nt great. Have seen many such as Brandi Carlile, Johnny Mathis, Natalie Cole and Pink Martini.. Every seat provides a great sound it just depends on how much you want to spend to be closer to the stage, even some of the far... More

Cool place. Saw Bob Marley and Jimmy Clif there, from the Orchestra Pit in 71 or so, thank you Mike W. The history of the place when it was a 60's-70's open door to the heroes of music, when they were rising stars or later when the bands had had better days.

The Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall is my preferred venue for a concert. It is a beautiful historic theater with great acoustics and beautiful decor. I prefer the intimate feel of this smaller theater.

We have season tickets and love the shows. Its always fun to see shows and have dinner in Portland. We travel to Portland by train and leave the driving to others while enjoying a good book.

I have seen many performances here and it is by far one of my favorite venues. The architecture is beautiful. The acoustics are great. They have a variety of performers come through - symphony, comedians, rock stars. They serve snacks and alcohol can be consumed at your seat.

Saw Jim Gaffigan here, first time in Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. What a lovely place! Not a bad seat in the house, looking forward to seeing more shows here. So nice they bring great shows to downtown Portland
