Nice venue to see a show, but not optimal for a rock concert.

Its classic design and compact size makes the Flynn a nice venue to enjoy a show. Unfortunately, the Flynn is best suited for a play, or orchestra, not for a rock concert. The... read more

Its classic design and compact size makes the Flynn a nice venue to enjoy a show. Unfortunately, the Flynn is best suited for a play, or orchestra, not for a rock concert. The audience at the George Thorogood show was mostly lethargic and the vast majority of the crowd remained seated throughout this high energy show and these people expected... More

Hampered only by lack of nearby parking on a ten below zero day, The Flynn Theatre was a great place to see School House Rock Live .. Good views from the balcony, pleasant staff, comfortable accommodations. Love to go to The Flynn. Just plan your parking options in advance.

It was a packed house and VSO entertained with a great performance. The soloist for Elena Urioste demonstrated her virtuosity.

However the Flynn has gotten expensive and leg room has gotten smaller with the much needed new seats. Not sure if they added seats. Snacks and drinks are highway robbery. This is Burlington Vermont not New York city.

I've been to the Flynn for a few different shows, it's a nice clean venue, although I don't like the fact that you can't have a drink in your seat. They only allow you to get a drink during break times. They do have a nice variety of different type of shows, and theater as well.

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
