Classic theater in downtown Northampton, it will remind you of an old Broadway Theater. Wooden seats, creaky wooden floors add to the charm of this great old theater. The Calvin hosts a wide variety of musicians and comedians several nights of the week. I've seen...More

This theater is perfect for seeing a show. It's just the right size and every seat is a good one. There's a bar as well!

We have been here several times, and it seems that each time it is dirtier and more run-down. Right now even the sign in front is broken. This could be a very good concert venue if the owner would fix it up.
