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.

I love the Victoria theater, there is really not a bad seat in the house. I often attend musicals and plays at this venue and the only real drawbacks are that parking is about 2 blocks away and that the aisles are narrow so you sometimes feel like you are on top of the person in front of you (especially...

What a treasure they have in the downtown area of Dayton. This theatre has an amazing & tragic history but it's still going strong. Worth a visit!

The little diner before the show was fast, friendly, and had good food for a reasonable price. The theatre was beautiful and I doubt there's a bad seat in there. It was a wonderful experience.

This theatre has a smaller seating area than the Schuster theatre. Both have a great variety of shows including family shows.
