From every seat in the theater you can see the stage really good. Unless you really like sitting up front I wouldn't pay for a higher ticket, because of the way the theater is made every seat has a good view of the stage.

I went to see a comedian at the theatre and this was my first visit there. I was truly impressed with the layout and seating. Nice location and parking was not too far away. Clean facility and ample bathrooms. Will be returning.

Went to see Sufjan Stevens concert. Thought the seats were a little on the small size. Sound was good. Parking was right next door, which was convenient, it did take forever to get out after the show. Would see another show here, but wouldn't go out of my way to see a show here.

I had an amazing time at Altria Theater to see Nephew Tommy Comedy show. Beautiful historical building. My only complaint is that the staff allow people to walk in throughout the show. There needs to be a cut off time. It is really a distraction for the rest of the people that arrived early. No other complaints. Staff were very... More

I have been here many times over the years, and I keep telling myself I'll never go back for another show, but I had to see Celtic Woman when they came to town. So I broke my promise and went back. . .and of course I regret it. My criticism has nothing to do with Celtic Woman, but it was... More

Attended the Celtic Women in concert on 4/2/15 after many years of having been to the Altria Theatre. It has gone through several name changes and a recent renovation in the 30+ yrs that I have lived in the Richmond area. The theatre is impeccably clean and well appointed, abundant staff to assist in seating and directing to seats, sound... More

Excellent venue - talented group. Well worth going. Tickets were in center balcony which were just fine. Parking is nearby for a slight charge.

Four of us went to the Josh Turner concert. This was our first visit to the Altria, and we would like to return for another show of some kind. The theatre is beautiful! The staff was very helpful and courteous. I was concerned about parking but needn't have been. Parking was clearly marked and right across the street for only... More

The wife and I went to see Chicago the Musical last night. As most know, this musical has been running for quite a while. We decided to go at the last moment(the day before). Seat selection wasn't good but that is our fault. The seats were in the Grand Tier section I" row A. We were looking forward to this... More

Yes, the theater is old and has tight seating. But come on now if you want modern seating and fancy seating this ain't it! It's experiences in a century old building with walls that if they could talk, well who knows! The play "Sister Act" was well written and the performance of the actors was beyond my expectations! The staff... More
