What a fun find in the heart of Hillsboro. Food was great, staff very friendly and a fun interesting atmosphere too.

“A former movie theater now used for plays and other presentations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Located in downtown Hillsboro. We have attended many excellent plays there. A very comfortable theater. There is an excellent bistro just inside the front entrance.

“Wow slow service, but above all - terrible food.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

They got my order wrong but after waiting almost an hour for my food, I didn't want to wait another hour. I should have though.. because the food was inedible. The staff smell like cigarette smoke. The food probably comes from the same truck McDonalds food comes from. Ick.

“Our Favorite Entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

We started going to the Venetian Theater 3 1/2 years ago when Bag & Baggage staged their first production. We have been season ticket holders ever since. We've also gone to see old movies on the big screen, which has been great fun (and cheap!) This year we saw Casablanca and Gone with the Wind.

It has been very interesting to see Bag & Baggage evolve, and we are pleased to have been a part of it. Just remember - if you plan to eat at the restaurant on show night, make reservations!

“Concerts, Live Theatre, Comedy, Old Movies, Theme Nights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2011

Fantastic entertainment line-up plus good eats, drinks and company equals the perfect night out!

I've had many good times here . A ladies night for Reindeer Monologues (adult holiday show) Sound of Music theme night with the whole family (movie and dress up) live Jazz or plays for date nights. Bag and Baggage is a wonderful production group. Also watched the Ducks make us proud at the BCS!

We love downtown Hillsboro and the stunning decor and interesting architecture are the perfect fit for Main Street. There is plenty of parking under the Civic Center down one block.
