Star Plaza Theater has been around a long time but remains a wonderful concert venue. I believe it only holds around 3000 people and therefore there isn't a bad seat in the house. Seats are comfortable and the sound is great. Cocktails are very affordable and can be enjoyed in your seat. As I said before the facility has been... More

Went to Star Plaza for a concert. Have not been here in awhile. Our seats were in the balcony two rows from the top center stage. The seats were fantastic. This is the perfect size theater. I'm a big guy and found the seats to be of good size. The only negative was waiting in a very long line when... More

I was thrilled to be there Thursday evening when it was announced that The Star Plaza Theater will not be torn down!!! I look forward to more concerts!!! The Moody Blues were awesome as usual!!! Some updating to the theater is in order and I hope that comes with this great news.

If you've lived in the Region anytime in the last 35 years or so, you've been to the Star Theatre for a concert, of many sorts. A wide variety of entertainment GREATS have performed here, a venue with "not a bad seat in the house, holding approximately 3400 seats comfortably, and accommodations built in if you want to carry on...

Old, out of date and disorganized. Nobody directing traffic. It took forever to get into the parking lot and to leave. It's no wonder they are finally going to close and tear it down.

We have been attending concerts here for years and have really enjoyed the entertainment they have brought in. Andy Williams at Christmas, Chris Botti, Dweezil Zappa, The Moody Blues and many other entertainers who have given wonderful performances. The acoustics are very good and the seats are set so there really is not a bad seat in the house. Concert... More

Saw Queen tribute band Killer Queen there recently. Venue is not flashy or anything, but serves its purpose well. Sound was good, view is good from anywhere, and the staff were pleasant. Careful if you want to knock back a few beers or drinks though, as their drink prices are crazy expensive. Overall would recommend if something is there you... More

We attended a Weird Al concert here and we're pleased with all aspects of it. The venue is close to hotels, easy to find and with good seating. The acoustics were very good and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

We attended a comedy show here, the place is small and therefore no seat is really a bad seat. I did have trouble with the the sound system on occasion, I had a hard time understanding what the comdedian was saying. There was no charge for parking, a plus. They have a place set up for drink, we did not... More

I took my 3 year old daughter and some her close friends to see Elmo and Friends. I'm going to keep it short and simple. Even though this place and event was considered a kid friendly event it was not! They wanted the kids to stay in their seats the entire time. I understand the hazard for the kids to... More
