This place is just the right size for Dover. Our son's graduation was held here and it was just the perfect size

“Nice intimate venue, great acoustics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

I took my friend here for a concert of her choice as her birthday gift. I thought the theater was very nice. It is small, and I liked that, it felt like a very intimate venue. No matter where you sat, you had a good seat. The acoustics were wonderful. I understand that the theater had undergone a lot of renovation, and what was so nice was that it appeared to have been restored to its original glory, having been built as an opera house in 1904. Parking is easy, close by, and free. I am looking for another chance to go back, this is a nice place to enjoy a performance.
