Been visiting the Perot with my family for over 30 years! It's just beautiful! We've enjoyed everything from magicians to musicals and ballets! If you are able you should definitely find a way to make it there! I plan to share the experience with my children as well!

Most of the classic theaters I have toured from the early 1900s were Egyptian Revival or Egyptian Art Deco, but this amazingly restored theater that opened in 1924 is in the Italian Renaissance style. Beautiful gold leafing, relief plaster, Greek Deities and historical displays in glass cabinets upstairs. An amazing Broadway class theater is a hidden gem of the south!

Texarkana's Perot Theater was part of the Sanger Theater chain that had theaters throughout the South dating back to the 1920's. This jewel of a theater has been beautifully restored to that period. It was wonderful to be able to recently attend a Pops Concert in Remembrance and Thanksgiving by the Texarkana Symphony Orchestra which featured the Texarkana Symphony Orchestra... More

Several types of events are held at the Perot. It is a very elegant music stage where concerts and symphony music is played. Excellent seating, nice balcony, and bathrooms are very well kept.

After visiting the other few sights in Texarkana, Texas, this is by far the most fantastic thing that we have done in the area so far. We went to the Perot Theatre to see the Texarkana Symphony Orchestra play a Thanksgiving concert. It was phenomenal. For being such an old theater the music really sounded fantastic in this old structure.... More

This place is great for shows saw B.B. King there earlier this year and it was a great show. I really love the beautiful design of early to mid 1900's architecture. A must stop for people who like such things.

A beautiful fully restored theatre, unexpected in a town as small as Texarkana. A must see if you are visiting from out of town or local. They give free tours, that are very informative and interesting. Make sure you check to see if any shows are going on and get tickets, you will not be disappointed.

I love the atmosphere of this wonderfully preserved venue. There is not a bad seat in the house! If you see Cirque type show get balcony seats, if you are just there to listen to a concert doesn't matter where you sit the sound is fantastic! It is a wonderful theater and should be enjoyed by all!

We walked in off the street to receive a personal full guided tour of this magnificent old theatre. The staff dropped what they were doing to give us a free, very informative and passionate tour of this beautifully restored building. The enthusiasm shown by the staff and the historical knowledge which was relayed to us was of a very high... More
