Good News - Seating is very close to the stage (seems like an old movie theater); convenient on the street or limited pay parking; bar on site with reasonable prices for a venue with a live act; comfortable seats; probably a better venue for a comedian or smaller act. Improvement Needed - Acoustics were not great for a rock show (it seemed like the sound staff was trying to make improvements on the fly); long wait at the bar area for a drink; bathroom space needs expansion.

Appreciate your feedback. Could you tell me approximately where you were sitting? There can be variations on how the show sounds in different parts of the auditorium. As we consider new equipment and work with future acts, the more specific information we get the more it helps us.

I am not sure if there is a bad seat in this theater. We have never been disappointed with the shows. The theater is clean and the decor is outstanding. The parking is within walking distance of the theater..

On Friday night a Whitney Houston tribute show singer Belinda Davis gave a fantastic performance. It was like something you would see in Las Vegas. The theater is absolutely beautiful and has great acoustics. They have great artist there. Check out there shows that are coming. The prices are Fantastic. Very good Shows coming up. Buy your tickets at the box office and save a lot of money.

The theater is beautiful. The people who work there are extremely nice. They got my husband a chair when our cab was late and we were waiting in the lobby. (My husband uses a cane) Acoustics for the concert were great. Comfortable seats.
