“Stunning locale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Orientalist decor is stunning. Not what I'd do to my house, but a great place to have a function. Highly recommended.

“An historic treasure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

So glad when they resurrected the Landmark, and then even gladder when they finally did the rebuild last year to bring it up to spec for current touring shows! It is an absolute gem, and if you go to a show, leave a little extra time to walk around the house before hand. The eye candy in this theater is almost overwhelming, and well worth the time to check out. You can just imagine the house full in it's heyday. One concern: Depending on the show, sometimes the sound can be lacking because there is no center/front of house fill. That means if you are a big fan of a band, and wait in line to get tix up front and center, you get the worst sound in the house. A shameful over-sight I have experienced at all 3 shows I have been to since the re-open. Line array speakers set up to shoot straight down the wings, leaving center of the house in a big audio mudpie. I do not blame the house beyond not recognizing the issue, I blame the sound company. Not enough to ruin a show by any means, just something to be aware of when buying tickets.

“Landmark Theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

The Landmark Theater is GORGEOUS. I mean it's historical and it's beautiful. From the first moment you walk in--it's just overwhelming! The only complaint I've ever heard is that in the balcony the seats are small and they tilt forward so you feel like you're falling. But if you're in the front part of the balcony--like the mezzanine A--it's roomy enough and the view is awesome. The orchestra seating is pretty good until you're in the middle of the overhang..

“Plays, Opera, Music, great acoustics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Love the restorations of this historically accurate LANDMARK ;-) Acoustics and atmosphere are excellent. Parking is tough but possible in a number of lots in the area. Saw "Jersey Boys" last year - supberb sound.
