As an event planner/wedding coordinator I have worked in many venues and this is one of the best! The staff was so hospitable. Bruce, Allison and Liz were terrific! The venue itself is gorgeous and there is lots of attention to detail.

Nice place, no bad seats in the house. Parking needs help, there is not enough spots. They hold some really nice concerts and performances.

We have attended many performance. I have learned that the front seats on the main floor are just too close to the stage. Front of the Balcony is the best view.

Nice facility- cool. Been here before. Easy to get to downtown Paducah and parking was no problem. Downtown river walk was very historical to learn more about a river town. Murals on the flood wall speaks more about the history.
