Smaller auditorium, which i love. More of a up close feel, great sound and comfortable seats. The balcony seats look really cozy and had the nicer seats and project closer to the stage.

Very nice theatre with beautiful architecture and abundant history. Seats were pretty close though, we enjoyed our time there. We say the Pink Floyd laser light show. Theatre offered popcorn and beer.
