My husband and I spent his birthday here and stayed at the Plaza before it's torn down. Glad to hear that they are keeping the theater although it won't be the same without the hotel on grounds.

The Star Plaza Theater is what I call, the right place, at the right location, with the right sounds. The theater seats around 3,400 people, where the seats are designed in a semi-circle. This design creates wonderful views from almost every seat in the theater. The theater`s intimate design and size makes the acoustics the best (I think, in the... More

I have seen many many great artists here! Seats about 3,400. Very easy access off of I65 and Route 30. There is an entrance exit off of Broadway that very few people use....(just gave away my secret). The acoustics in this place are phenomenal. Not a bad seat in the place. Drinks and snacks are sold in the theater. You... More

Jason Bonham, and company put on a great show. The sound quality was quite good, and the playing was phenomenal. Unfortunately the ushers at the Star Plaza Theater did not do their jobs, and our show experience was ruined. We paid for VIP seating, but were continually blocked by selfish idiots standing in the aisle. Paying for VIP tickets was... More

Thanksgiving Soul Jam featuring classic artists Lenny Williams, Blue Magic, Enchantment, Bloodstone, The Manhattans, and the Dramatics. Old School music at its best! Great concert. Great venue; all seats are great seats! Free parking... Did I say free parking? I pray the venue cam survive its current challenges.

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

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...
