“Interesting programs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

This small and intimate setting often has some really interesting entertainment and events. Art shows, stand up comedy, ski movies, ballet and even Zumba occasionally for the public in the ballet room. In the Summer there is a wonderful Farmers Market at this site and sometimes there is a Christmas bazaar with local delicacies.

“NYC ballet, Met opera and London theater for $25 a ticket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Where else can you see principals of the NYC Ballet, HD live transmissions from the Metropolitan Opera and National Theatre in London, Alvin Haley and other dance troupes and special artsy movies for at most $25 a ticket? You can also see live opera nights, live local theater and live musical theater and park your car for free.

“check out their program”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

It is hard to write a review for this arts center as they have changing events. However, I was recently there for the 'Wild and Scenic' film festival and discovered a few things:
- the theater is lovely with a wonderful stage and great screen
- the foyer was used for a great art exhibit, including sculptures and various print and drawings.
- wednesday's there is a local farmers market (pretty sure this will stop sometime this fall)
Example events from the upcoming program:
- improvisation workshop
- manhattan film festiva
- several theater productions

If you are looking for non-outdoor pursuits and some interaction with locals, consider visiting LPCA. Their calendar of events is:

“Lake Placid Sinfonietta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

On Wed July 4 I attended a concert in Mids Park in Lake Placid NY by the Lake Placid Sinfonietta. The Sinfonietta is a chamber sized professional orchestra that performs in Lake Placid and the surrounding communites. I enjoyed the concert, high quality professional music in a small town. They perform at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts on Sundays at 7:30 as well. If you are looking for something to do in Lake Placid that involves the arts I recommend a Sinfonietta concert. I really really enjoyed the concert.
