It is totally restored and is absolutely gorgeous. Staffed for every occasion by the sweetest volunteers. Seating on the main floor is just OK - but the mezzanine seats are to die for! We attend performances and old time movies here several times a year. It is spectacular!!!

This is a theater with lots of history that has been restored. It is beautiful, the seats are comfortable, and used for many different events from actors to plays, and community events too.

I enjoy this theater like no other. It reminds me of when my mother took me to see the Disney movies like Bambi and Snow White when I was just a girl in the 60's. The big curtain opens on the stage and you are relaxed in your movie chair seat. I love the old architecture inside with the high... More

I went to see Ms. Angelou at this facility and was seated in the middle of a very tight row. While the speaker captivated and kept my mind on her, I spent the entire time trying to stay within the confines of the seat without stepping on toes or bumping elbows.

If you have a chance to see a show at The Elsinore, go. It is such a beautiful, well preserved place and the staff is excellent.

From the time you enter the grand entryway, then the theater it is almost all class, Love classic silent films with the theatre organ. Concerts, anything is good here. wonderful acoustics, visually stunning. Only minor drawback is the bathrooms. They have been remodeled but still not convenient.

My wife and I attended a Brothers Four concert here in the fall of 2013. What a beautiful and historic place. Take time to walk around the theater and take in all of the interesting things there. We are planning on attending other events here.

We went to a wedding here and it was absolutely beautiful and the theater is small enough that all seats are good seats. The sound was also really good. I would definitely want to see another event here!

The Elsinore Theater is a majestic theater/concert hall which was originally built in 1926 and totally refurbished during the past 10 years. The theatre was designed to resemble the Elsinore Castle in Denmark and is incredibly ornate. The theater contains an enormous Wurlitzer Organ which is played during silent movies and other events. In recent months we've seen The Brother's... More
