What a wonderful old and historic concert hall in the center city of Portland Oregon. Last evening I was walking by the old building and I saw a sign in the marquee saying Moody Blues in concert.

Concession choices aren't up to par. The Schnitzer is quite a beautiful place and I would expect anything offered to be of that standard. At least they have snacks or drinks if not out of certain soda flavors. No need to fret...lots of places nearby to grub :)

The Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall is a beautiful venue, but I think it could use a renovation. The seats are pretty old. It's a huge hall with about 3,000 seats, so if you don't seat close, it can be hard to see. It doesn't have a very steep gradient between the rows, so it's best to sit on a center... More

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
