I hope you get an opportunity to visit this beautiful restoration right here in downtown Salem Oregon. As a child I used to go to this theater to watch movies and still have fun memories of all of those times. Now we find ourselves going to major events and enjoying this throughout our entire life. Thank you Salem for saving... More

In the finest gothic tradition of the twenties and thirties this is a perfect example and a joy to visit. It is small enough to make musical performances seem intimate. The Wednesday night film series is fun to go to and there are many varied types of entertainment presented throughout the year. The theatre is even available for weddings. Since... More

Our first visit to this Salem landmark theatre. What a treasure we have in this beautifully restored theatre. Every seat is good for seeing an event. The seats were comfortable, but not designed for someone with long legs. The rows are fairly close together. Our hats go off to those that volunteered their time to make this theatre come back...

We go to the Elsinore Theater a few times a year for all kinds of shows. Might be ballet, rock n roll, country music, dancing, or just old classic movies. Last night was Neil Berg’s Rock 'N' Roll Decades which was absolutely amazing. Each musician/singer was world class and I feel very fortunate to see something worthy of Broadway in... More

My husband and I took a friend and our 6 year old granddaughter to see "Popovich" at the Elsinore Theatre and it was absolutely the best show. Live animals including cats, dogs, goats, geese, doves, a parrot, and a miniature horse. All came from a rescue and were very well trained. The entire show was very entertaining and went by... More

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.

Don't miss this venue! This is a very beautiful older theatre with a mighty Wurlitzer with all the pipes! The seating is very comfortable. This theatre is loved by many, and it shoes, as the renovations that have been done are just super. Many types of shows are offered here. I have been to many of the performances. I went... More

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.
