“Historic Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

My grandparents used to go to this theater way back in the day. In fact, they first heard about the Pearl Harbor bombing on the sidewalk outside as they left a movie.

It was closed for a long time, then opened up a few years ago. It's always first rate. The shows are classy and the movies are vintage. Snacks are cheap.

The best part is the ghosthunting experience. Usually about once a year, they invite a ghost tour group in to stay part of the night looking for paranormal activity. I did it once and would love to do it again. It's a separate event that you book with American Ghost Adventures.

“Loved this Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

I don't know why it took me so long to get around to going to this theatre! It is very nicely restored and the staff was so welcoming. We saw a play, 33 Variations, and it really benefitted from the close up atmosphere. I will be checking all upcoming events and attending in the future.

“What a great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

I took the family to see our first show at the theatre - hairspray. everyone had a great time! we really enjoyed the smaller theatre as we were so close to the stage. It seems like every seat would a good one. we were able to purchase drinks and snacks before and at the intermission as well and take them to our seats. We will be going to more events in the future. I recommend for all ages based on the show. The kids have already picked out the show they want to see next..

The theater is beautiful and the quaint atmosphere all provide a great locale for talented acting. They not only provide exceptional live shows they bring nostalgia to life with old classic movies!

“Outstanding production!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Saw "Hairspray" at Garden Theatre last night…amazingly professional for a small theatre! A fantastic bunch of talent, beautifully directed! Not a boring moment the entire evening…truly as good as some of the Broadway productions I've seen. We saw their production of "33 Variations" a couple of months ago, and it was also wonderfully acted and thoroughly entertaining. The fall opening and spring closing musicals of this theatre have been just wonderful for the past several years…lots of professional talent. A beautiful little historical theatre located in the charming downtown area of Winter Garden…highly recommend!
