“Enjoyable night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Always friendly service. I try not to buy food there cause the quantity is small while the price is high. The theaters are always clean and sound quality is good. Our 4 year old loves getting his own colorful booster chair when ever he comes along. After he and my husband love the little arcade room.

“Wonderful, intimate venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is SUCH a nice theatre. It's newish and very intimate - it only holds perhaps a few hundred people and there are no bad seats. There is a large parking structure, but we even managed to snag street parking very nearby. And the restaurants of downtown Livermore are just down the street. I just wish they had more events I was interested in attending. If someone/something you'd like to see is scheduled there, I highly recommend going.

“Who would have predicted Livermore as an entertainment capital?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A beautiful venue like this must have taken a great deal of community effort and support to build, and Livermore deserves credit. It is a stellar amenity. It seats about 500, which means you have good sight lines no matter where you sit. Whoever does the programming presents a great variety of entertainment. We drive the hour it takes to get there sometimes twice a month because there's some attraction we can't resist. The performers frequently praise the facility during their opening or closing remarks. Just last night, the band praised the lighting and the sound system and told the audience we were lucky to have such a resource. I think they were right.

“Love this theater!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I love this theater, there really is not a bad seat in the house. In fact I'd say the very front seats are the worst because you are looking up at the performer. The best seats are in the middle, at the front of the back section (there is an aisle separating the smaller front section from the back).
