A Wonderful, Intimate Old-School Theater

Just a great place to see a show. Although some seats on the edges have limited views, the rest on the floor and in the balconies provide excellent sight lines. The theater... read more

Just a great place to see a show. Although some seats on the edges have limited views, the rest on the floor and in the balconies provide excellent sight lines. The theater itself isn't huge. So it's an intimate experience. The sound in our seats (under the first balcony) dropped off a handful of times. But otherwise, we had a... More

Last night I saw my daughter star in a play at this magnificent theater. It's beautiful all seats are good and has the amenities of a larger space with bar and cafe.

We took my daughter to see Kinky Boots at this beautiful, historic theater for her 21st birthday. We sat in the third row center orchestra with an incredible view, but honestly there isn't a 'bad' seat in the house. The theater is big enough to draw the hit shows, but small enough to feel an intimate performance. The entire venue... More

Saw Kinky Boots, great show with the leading singers with great voices,loved the voice of Kyle Robinson ( Lola- Simon). we were in orchestra row G with limited view which was not bad. The theater was restored beautifully. Thought I was back in Paris. Getting to proper seating can be rambling. Was surprised that food could be taken to seats

Our seats were center orchestra in row Z. So yes we were fairly far back in the theater, but we could see and hair well. The seats were comfortable and we did have room, but a 6 footer might be close especially in the knee area would be tight. The theater is a restoration of an old Baltimore showplace. We... More

The Hippodrome is a beautifully restored building with fantastic acoustics. The flow of people traffic in the venue can be a bit awkward especially around the restrooms as the snack stands, show merchandise and bathroom lines can easily intersect. Pro tip use the restrooms on the second floor, the lines are much shorter generally. I had the pleasure of seeing... More

The Hippodrome has been upgraded beautifully and is a complete gem of a theater. I confess that I wish we could pick it up and move it to a nicer part of town, as the West side of Baltimore is no place to be at night. Stick to a matinee and enjoy this incredible venue.
