Mill Valley wouldn't be the same without the Throckmorton theater. Offering live entertainment. There is always something tempting on the menu. Tuesday nights comedy is a sure bet for fun!

The eclectic range of shows at this delightful little theater hold there own against any big city venue. The great Robin Williams appeared here regularly as does Mort Sahl and numerous headliner musicians and bands. Please support this local jewel.

We had a group in town and enjoyed an evening meal at Balboa Cafe and a show at the Throckmorton Theatre. We attended a Tuesday "Mark Pitta & Friends" comedy show. I think we saw four comedians plus the MC. The show started with a beginner and ended with the headliner. We all enjoyed the evening.

142 Throckmorton Theater is in the middle of town and the facility abounds with incredible variety: from Comedy Night on tuesdays with Mark Pitta where you might see Robin Williams or Dana Carvey jump up on stage with the scheduled comics, to very serviceable renditions of golden age Broadway musicals (that you always meant to see but never did) by...

The Throckmorton Theatre is intimate and packed with laughs on Tuesday. It's worth going to if you find yourself within say... 30 miles of Mill Valley on a Tuesday night. Tickets in advance might be a good idea, especially for Tuesday night with Mark Pitta. He's great, and so are his amazing guests. My wife and I went last Tuesday... More

This is a great venue in beautiful downtown Mill Valley. It has a variety of different uses from comedy (comedy night with Mark Pitta is always guaranteed laughs--and often locals like Robin Williams and Dana Carvey will show up to perform), to bands, to plays, to talks with icons. This venue is well worth a closer look.
