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

We saw the Celtic Woman in May 2014 - one of about 5 or 6 times we go to the Flynn each year. The new seating is outstanding and the ushers are quite good. They bring first-class shows to town week after week. Celtic Woman was a sellout and yet we were in and out of the theatre without feeling... More

Very nice venue, friendly staff. My only complaint is that the temperature inside was far too warm. Seemed like the air conditioning came on very briefly, then shut off. A little cooler would have been nice.

Saw an excellent creative premier play from a Vermont playwright. The theater was small and intimate, with comfortable seats and good lighting. The seats did not flip up, so it was difficult for people to pass each other to get to other seats. The ticket prices were not low, but also not high. The quality of the performances and the... More

I have never been to the Flynn Center it is right downtown very convenient to many different eating establishments. It was a wonderful place to see a concert there was not a bad seat and I really enjoyed the Brit Floyd concert. It was simply amazing and I would see another concert here in a heart beat.

The Flynn is a fantastic venue for seeing a show. It is small enough to feel intimate, but large enough to attract big name performances. Seats are comfortable and the decor is great.
