Well maintained old theater

We took a group of senior citzens to see a classic movie. What a great place. The lobby is beautiful. It has to be one of the historical greats in Dayton. What a fun place. Get there early so you can see all the architecture.

I love the Victoria Theater! This is by far my favorite place in Dayton to catch a show. The building is beautiful and is rich with history. There is not a bad seat in the house. We enjoy going for the Summer Movie Series and so do the kids. It's an awesome experience and is well priced!

One of the best places to see a play anywhere in the United States. Beautifully restored. It is a smaller space which makes it more intimate. Love seeing theater and acts here.

Have been to many productions at this wonderful, classic theater. Beautifully restored a few years ago thanks to the generosity of Virginia Kettering, the Victoria is a thoroughly modern building beneath it's finishes allowing high quality productions. Comfort is excellent with one exception: balcony seats. Apparently in the remodeling these were not replaced (as we're the orchestra seats) and are... More

I love the historic beauty of this theatre. Such a special feel in here. However being an old theatre the seats are small and there is no leg room, even being a petite woman. It has a nice intimate feel and all the seats have nice views but unfortunately I still think twice about going to shows here.

The Victoria is one of Dayton's best historic landmarks. My first experience was as a teenager during the 1970's attending rock shows prior to its restoration. The current theater is very beautiful and well-maintained. I attended the recent production of Smokey Joe's Cafe and sat in the lower balcony. The leg room can be very cramped (I am 6' 5"... More

We have long enjoyed the Victoria Theater as a first rate venue for stage productions. However, our recent visit to the companion Loft Theater was our first. As amateur actors we were struck by the amphitheater style seating resting at the edge of the half moon style stage. Our comfortable, front row seats nearly placed us in the midst of... More
