We sat left orchestra seats. Great view & acoustics. Friendly, helpful staff. Will definitely return for more shows! Concession prices were typical. $6 for mixed drinks & beer. Also... More

Great show in a wonderful theater. The Saenger is a very comfortable and accessible place for a show, be it comedy, ballet, or symphony. Centrally located near Seville Quarter, there is plenty of nightlife and activities for after hours!

This is a lovely theatre. We sat in the center of the first balcony, and were able to see the show quite well. The seating is comfortable, but not elaborate. I recommend you allow yourself plenty of time to find parking, and the walk to the theatre. When we went, they had streets closed, and 2 other major events going... More

Pensacola is blessed to have a very talented symphony orchestra. Last nights performance was so good. It is best to get season tickets because some performances are sold out

I was so surprised when I walked into this wonderful theater for the first time. It has all the charm of a centuries old theater, but has the moden amentaties. The seats are very comfortable, even the ones in the upper balcony where we sat. The temperature was nice and cool, too. The sound system worked flawlessly, we could easily... More

This theatre was convenient and easy to located. It has several states places in which to dine within walking distance. As the function we attended was on a Sunday, we were able to park on the street at no charge..

We went to see the rescheduled Stomp! production. We are so glad we did. Pensacola should be proud, the theatre is restored beautifully. Not a bad seat in the house. Wish we had a venue like this in Asheville. If you can catch a show her do it!
