This venue really adds to the experience of any show. Has been around for a long time and still attracts interesting shows and quite a crowd. The seating is a little cramped but that is common for a place like this.

I have seen several shows (symphony, musicals, and concerts) at this venue. The acoustics are excellent, and the architecture is just beautiful. I love coming to the Coronado for events.

We love going to the Cornado. It is a refurbish Rockford Jen. Walking in is like time traveling. The theater is stunning inside with a maniacal star ceiling. What’s on stage is interesting but just looking around at the theater itself is worth the ticket...More

This is a fun place to catch a play or concert. It is not just because of the good sight lines and sound, but also the ambiance of this classic theater.

You don't see many of the old theatres restored and in operation. This is something to see! The ornate decor is breathtaking. The acoustics are suburb! We saw Foreigner here in April and were blown away. I would see another performance here in a heartbeat!

It's been a while but I went to the Coronado to see the band Chicago play. The venue is nice and pretty big but the seats in the upper levels are pretty close together so you'll get to know your seat mates well. It also...More

This theater is beautiful, and not something you’d expect to find in Rockford. This is my first time being back since seeing performances in Chicago, and I have to admit, this theater is much nicer than the ones I’ve been to in Chicago.

Beautiful theater! The show was great! We had a good time. People in the area do not often have live theater, so they can be a little frustrating.

Directly across from the Coranado theater. Convenient and very reasonably priced.

Views are fine but pitch between seats is tight. Try to get seats in the first row.
