“Check it out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Lots of history in this beautiful building. We had a guided tour with a bit extra, and hearing the history, the repairs needed after the hurricanes, and seeing the names of the people who have graced that stage was very interesting.

“Elvis Tribute Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The opera house is such a fantastic venue. Just large enough to attract wonderful artists and shows but small so matter where you sit you feel close to the stage. We attend one show every year and so far have never seen the same thing. The Elvis Tribute Show was even better than we had expected. All the performers, band and dancers were excellent.

“The Ronnie Milsap Concert was Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We went to the Ronnie Milsap concert on Saturday and had a great time. The Grand 1984 Opera House is a great venue for concerts because it's small and you feel like you're close to the entertainer. Because of it's age, the leg room is tight which is a little uncomfortable for tall men. This is the second time we've been to the Grand, and we plan to return. The first time we saw "A Tuna Christmas" and enjoyed it as well. It's one of the best things to do in Galveston.

“The Grand is a special place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Nothing beats the atmosphere and acoustics in this Grand Old Lady. It is like walking back in time. My husband and I have been for several different types of shows and all are excellent.

“Great venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Beautiful restoration and surprisingly good sound on the highest balcony. You might not want to sit on the front row if you have any height issues.
