This is a beautiful theater built during the great depression and one of the reasons Milton Hershey kept his town from feeling the depression. He commissioned it to be built, along with several other buildings in Hershey, keeping citizens employed despite the tough times. It has been kept up really well. It's beautiful and parking is easy. It's a great... More

The Hershey Theatre is a restored historic building in downtown Hershey Pennsylvania and should have been updated for the expectations of a 21st century theater-going crowd. For $82, the seats were cramped just like an economy airline flight, and I was unfortunately seated next to someone who literally spilled out of a very narrow seat into my own. There is... More

We went to the Hershey Theatre last night to see I Love Lucy the Musical. It was an outstanding show with wonderful performers. However, the theatre was the star of the night.

This is a terrific local theatre. The ushers know the venue like the back of their hand and can seat you in minutes. Concessions and adult beverages are available on both floors, and drinks are allowed in the theatre if you purchase the 'dippy cup' for $4, which you can bring back over and over.

This is a gorgeous theater that is well worth a trip to see not only a show but the lovely venue. That said, it is a historic building, so do expect to be seated close together and to have someone's head in front of you.

The Hershey Theater always has great shows. I even had wine in a sippy cup. It was better than no drinks in the theater.

I have watched several shows here and have always had a good experience. The best part is the free parking and you don't have to walk a lot to get into the theatre.
