I went here with my daughter (who is autistic) and while I loved it, she had a different opinion. The aisles are REALLY close together, and the theatre gets very loud. If you are going with someone with a fire-hazard fear, sit in the front row, or in one of the aisle seats. The service was very good.

We attended A Night of Queen at Wheeler Opera House. They have a nice bar and the staff is super-friendly. It is a pretty small house--not a bad seat.

A night out at the Wheeler is always lovely. They have a nice concessions stand and the seating is excellent.

This is a unique venue which features a wide variety of presentations, from the Aspen Filmfest and other film series' to concerts, comedians and more. It was recently renovated (I think that is an ongoing project as of this writing), as so many beautiful vintage theaters have been. We like to sit in the balcony, but be warned: walking up... More
