Great HomeTown Venue with world class acts. Friendly staff and ambiance. Good place for comedy or to go dancing or to hear some excellent music. And it is a great place to watch your kids' friends in hometown productions on their way to stardom. I really enjoy this place and value this venue for Mill Valley

Came across the Tuesday comedy nights at the Throckmorton when staying in the area for a month and went along a couple of times. Having been to comedy clubs before I know they can be patchy but I thoroughly enjoyed both nights and the relaxed hosting by Mark Pitta.

This is a fantastic little theater but big talent. The ONLY drawback is the seating...crummy little seats and tables crammed in. But the rest is wonderful.

We are regulars for Tuesday night comedy, and always have a good time. There are off nights, when we don't love all the comedians, but in spite of that we keep coming back-and are always entertained. We've also been to hear music and the venue is the perfect sized.

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.
