Went to see 'The Book of Mormon' last month with my son. We purchased tickets the week prior, so were seated in the second-to-last row. The seats are comfortable, but quite narrow. Binoculars would have been nice. This was my first time at the Altria, so I cannot compare it to the pre-renovated appearance. But it was quite beautiful. As... More

This theater was constructed in 1927 and was just recently completed with a $63 million restoration. All the work completed provided a state of the art sound system, improved the electrical, heating and cooling systems, plumbing and detailed restoration of the walls and ceilings. After sitting in the orchestra level, grand tier and balcony level, I can attest that there... More

Tried to purchase tickets directly from the box office to see "Book of Mormons" . No such luck. No one answered advertised box office phone number after several tries on different days then the website for the box office defaulted to ETIX, a ticket reseller. I thought I purchased "very good" seats for $125 plus a service charge of $19... More

My wife and I went to see "Book of Mormon". The play was interesting. The music was beautiful. The facility is first class. As all we Americans keep getting bigger; more space would have been nice; but I understand.

Love the redone interior but I can not understand why the seats could not be made more comfortable. We need theater in Richmond but I am inclined to travel to ny or dc when I want to see a performance just because the Altria theater is so uncomfortable.

Sidewalks and marquees were finished just before the opening of Book of Mormon so both outside and inside were in great shape. Inside is impressive. Concession choices were minimal, but I would think that will improve (a person on my row was eating popcorn). No line at the rest room off the orchestra seating before the performance, but I don't...

This past week, the Altria Theatre reopened after being closed for renovation. I love the beautiful tile, and am pleased this is one of the decorative items restored and preserved so future generations can enjoy. I believe there are still opportunities for restrooms, especially for ladies. Our seat as in the orchestra area, and at break upon exiting the theatre,... More

Just attended a Tommy Emmanuel performance last weekend at the Landmark Theater. This is my second Tommy Emmanuel performance I have been to here. This theater is just beautiful and the sound is great. Always look forward to attending shows here.

I paid full price for an orchestra seat & drove 3 hours for a Broadway performance. During the 1st act, over a dozen people were admitted. In their futile effort to locate seat assignments in the dark, they blocked the stage. No usher came to assist. Finding the situation unacceptable, I went to the house manager. I told him I... More

M M, I'm so sorry about your experience at Wicked. I'm glad you received a refund. This will be passed along to the house manager's superiors. We apologize for his rudeness and poor management. My apologies again, Jackie More
