“American Idiot - Great Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

2nd time coming down from WI to see a show - this time it was American Idiot. We all loved the show and always have a good time at the Oriental Theatre. They run their shows like clockwork and aim to please. Makes a great get-away for a Friday night.

“Green Day American Idoit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Wasn't sure what to expect, but we loved it. Plus at the oriental theater you really can't get a bad seat. My husband it a big guy so he was a little cramped, but it was only an hour & a half long. Love the old theater atmosphere. The place is beautiful!!

“Beautiful Theater!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

The Oriental Theater is gorgeous! Take time to look around and don't forget to look up! It is a very old theater so it has narrow aisles, only one handicap accessible restroom, and poor human traffic flow. We were there this time to see "American Idiot" and the set and lighting were awesome.

“Pretty theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

It's right downtown. You can go shopping, have lunch and walk over to the theatre all in the same day if you plan it right. Work of advise, don't bring in ANY food/drinks from outside that you may have bought. They WILL NOT let you bring it inside the theatre even if you are not going to eat it there.
