This is my favorite theater for a smaller venue. Their programming is wonderful and there is a small stage downstairs where Vermont Stage performs. I love theaters where seeing and hearing the performers is so intimate.

My wife and I just saw Los Lobos in this fantastic and beautiful theatre! We had front row seats! It was a great show in a beautiful theater! The theater was remodeled some years again and you can tell there was a lot of pride and love that went into the refurbish. If you get a chance to see a... More

I love the shows they have here. My husband is not a big fan of most concert venues, but he loves coming here for a nice laid back show. They also have great theater productions here & many off broadway or touring shows can only be seen here if you want to stay in Vermont. Otherwise you have to travel... More

This a great place to see and hear performing arts. The interior has been beautifully restored and a marvel to behold. The space was designed for the pre-amplification era, however. Sitting anywhere close to the speakers in the front makes it difficult to understand vocals in that there is an echo effect that garbles amplified vocals.

Went to see a hilarious stand up comedy show. Very talented comedians. Cozy atmosphere. Bar inside so you can get drinks.

I go to the Flynn often because it brings in great talent and productions into a small restored theatre. It is lovely. I have seen everything from Phish to George Carlin and have enjoyed all. The local theatre group Lyric Theater is amazing and just did Les Mis here. Tony Bennett had the music stop during his show and commented... More

We went to see the Golden Dragon Acrobats here and get great seats for cheap. Bring a student id, they may offer a discount for the show.

This is a beautifully restored old "movie palace", seating around 1500. If you are there for a concert or amplified production, acoustics are reasonable. But you are in a long rectangle looking toward the main stage, and you will definitely miss nuances of dance and theatre performances if you are in the more affordable seats. (The basement "little stage" is... More
