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.

This gem of a theatre is one of Burlington's most wonderful places to be. Whether in the large theatre, the art gallery or the small theatre, there is not a bad seat from which to enjoy world-class offerings. The most special offering of all--New England's largest all-volunteer community theater group, Lyric Theatre, and its twice yearly musical productions that rival... More

This is a great historical gem in the center of Burlington is worth making a special trip for. The venue features top name talent, including outstanding jazz artists. Balcony seating is excellent, and the hall is small enough so that there are no bad seats. Worth a visit. CH

Came here for two shoes on First Night 2013. Great sound, newer seats, wonderful early 20th century decor, and enthusiastic staff.

I saw the Flynn before its 1980's renovation, I've been to the theater at least twice every year since. The latest renovation brings the theater up to world class status. This is referencing recent trips to Place Des Arts in Montreal, and 5 theaters in NYC in the past 12 months. They now have great wine at the intermissions, previously... More

We've been to two performances during my stay here and found the theatre to be comfortable and warm. The recently restored building is lovely and an attraction in itself.

We went for our first time and saw Diana Krall and it was a very worthwhile experience. The restoration of the interior is amazing and it is certainly comfortable. There were two small problems to be aware of. The seating, which has been totally refurbished, is positioned like in old theaters and not like your modern movie houses. This means... More

It would be worth a visit to the Flynn just to see this magnificent theatre in all its recently-restored glory. Take time to look around and appreciate the beauty of a bygone era brought back to vibrant, colorful life. Enjoy the acoustics (lauded by Tony Bennett, who demonstrated by singing "Fly Me to the Moon" a capella). Relax in the... More

Attended a concert last night with Aaron Neville performing which was excellent. This was my first time to the Flynn Theater which has been newly remodeled and the locals are pretty proud of this place. It was nice to see a restoration of an old Icon. The area parking to attend an event is a first come first served basis... More
