“Lovely, historic theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

We were not fortunate enough to see a show here, but were fortunate to find an employee available who took us for a very short, but memorable tour of this beautiful theater. The restoration is amazing and many big name acts have performed here, judging from the photos on the walls. Worth stopping in at non-show times, just in case there is someone available to show you around. The theater is a beautiful fixture in the charming small town of Newark, Ohio.

“Another Great Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Wife, myself and another couple visited the Midland recently to see the incredible Preservation Hall Jazz Band, what a great performance. Theater is gorgeous, clean, beautifuly restored, friendly and helpful staff. If you have never visited, your missing out.

“Great place but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

...The concerts that are here seem a bit awkward with seat placing. It is great for shows though. I love the architectural build but wish they redid the seating.

“Beautiful Midland Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

So many different shows staffed with volunteers from the community. The sound is great and the building is just beautiful retaining it's charm from a simpler time.

“Restored Beauty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I have been to the Midland on many occasions. My favorite has to be at Christmastime when they play the old classic movies, but I have also had the pleasure of seeing great acts like BB King here. The inside is a warp back into a wonderful time in history.
