Watched the BBKing concert and staff were like police. I've never been to a concert where they were so distracting....! It's standard today for people to take a few casual shots of artists at concerts but the staff made a huge deal with a lady in front of me taking a shot on her phone and kept glaring at everyone...

We attended the Menopause Musical January 30, 2014. We were told these were good seats but the Center seats row C (last row) was even with row B and we could not see over Row B's heads. We missed some of the show and had to sit with the seat in the up position to make us taller. This was... More

We watched A Children's Nutcracker by American Ballet Academy. Our seats were on the mezzanine level. Every seat at this level has an amazing view and acoustics are excellent. The seats themselves are updated and are more roomy and comfortable than the building's original seats in the balcony level which are wooden and narrow. The stage and lobby are absolutely... More

When I was a kid about 50 years ago I would go to the theatre to watch movies. At that time the theatre was getting pretty run down but still majestic. Now it is wonderful to see it in all it's splendor. I really like going to see old movies on the big screen. It's just cool.

Mom and I have enjoyed a few silent movies with organ accompaniment. What wonderful evenings of entertainment. The building is being preserved with such care. The many volunteers are so proud. We love this place. Just found it this summer in good old downtown Salem. The various events at the theater are worth looking into. If nothing else stop by... More

This is a beautiful historical theatre. We love to watch the American Ballet Academy Nutcracker each year with the kids. When you walk in the theatre, it takes you back in time to such a classy time period.

A great cinema-to-live-performances venue conversion. All kinds of acts appear. Magic acts, national and local musicians. Just a great venue.

I have watched movies, attended film festivals, watched concerts, and listened to lectures at the Elsinore. The architecture and decorations are from a time long ago. They have showings of older movies on a regular basis.

Check the Elsinore's schedule, attend something, you will be blown away. Somehow the magnificent building will enhance any performance. Nearly any even has an intermission and sells overpriced wine, but go ahead, it's for a good cause. This Tudor-Gothic style theatre features modern seats that are comfy on the main floor. The "Loodge" and balcony may still have the old... More
