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.

Such a nice restoration job. The attached parking garage couldn't be more convenient. It has a ton of charm and character, and make you appreciate the arts even more. It's like serving a great wine in a great glass. The Hippodrome is that vessel that makes theater shine.

What a great venue to see a show. Great sight lines and wonderful acoustics in all arrears of the theatre. This majestic old theatre has been modernly renovated to make your experience wonderful. Rivals any theatre on Broadway

My first visit to the Hippodrome with my daughter. We anxiously awaited the show and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful facility, friendly staff, great atmosphere. We loved the photo ops they offered and the show was amazing! There is a cafe attached to the theater as well and we had a lite bite to eat prior to the show. We loved... More

My wife and I went to see "Dirty Dancing" I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was and the parking garage is attached to the theater. No need to go outside just park, get in the elevator and get off directly in the lobby. Nice !!!!!

Love the Hippodrome! It is stunningly beautiful with no bad seat in the house. yes, the seats are a little close. Have seen The Lion King, Les Miserables and Wicked here. Helpful, friendly staff, large lobby. Easy drive in from Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia or Western Maryland. Multi-level parking garage right adjacent to theatre for easy entry and exit....

Lovely interior but the seating is terible. I'm tall and my knees were in the seat in front of me. Very uncomfortable!!!!

Saw Wicked at the Hippodrome. This was my first time at this theater - it is beautiful. Parking in an attached garage was easy, there is an elevator from the garage into the theater. Staff at Hippodrome was wonderful - we had a scheduling problem with my tickets - they easily fixed my problem and I was able to see... More
