The really nice theater and anything they have is great. They have excellent parking. The theatre is old and it has been kept up.

For a wonderful experience to view live theater or concerts the Z is a great place. No matter where you sit in the theater you will have an excellent view of the stage. Prices for shows/concerts are "wallet friendly" and the concession venue won't break the bank either. For an enjoyable evening out, go to the Zeiterion Theater.

I'm a local & have seen both national & local theater production & concerts here. It is a unique old theater with old, but comfy seating. It's a treasure within our community & I've seen productions here that rival anything I've seen in Boston or Providence at a lower cost & FREE parking. Check it out for yourself & have... More

As with everything there are always positives and negatives about things so let me give you the positives first.... More

Great theatre, with some surprisingly great shows. Great atmosphere and beautiful interior. The seats could be a little more comfy but it is an old theatre.

We have been members of the Z for several years and will continue to do so. We enjoy supporting local arts in the area. You can see from no matter which seat you are sitting. All seats are unobstructed. Some can be uncomfortable and really need switching out. The sound system could use some work but it is an awesome... More

An incredibly wonder theater, very few bad seats, can see from anywhere, seats A through N are kind of narrow, but you see well from the center M through the back.
