This was a great concert venue! Getting in was efficient, staff and security were all courteous and professional. Bar tender was helpful and friendly. The actual concert (Chevelle) was perfect. The sound quality was amazing. We'll be looking for more concerts out of this theatre....More

Nicely restored theater, with great acoustics. We were here for a Need To Breathe concert. The place was full, but didn't feel packed. Drinks were reasonably priced and staff was great. Nice venue to catch a live performance! Parking is not an issue. Lots of...More

It seems to be located in a somewhat sketchy part of town. It's outside the main tourist area on Main Street which looks like it used to be a sort of bustling small-town, but most of the shops are vacant, boarded up, or just small...More

This is really one of my favorite venues to see a concert. I film bands so I've been too many venues. There really isn't a bad spot in the building. You can see the stage from anywhere. The staff is always great, I have never...More

This is one of the best concert venues for an intimate evening with the artists. Venue only holds a few hundred. Standing room only. Awesome night.

Grabbing A Cab To The Rainbow Bridge From Rapids Theatre (1 Replies)
I am planning on going to see Theory Of A Deadman this Friday at the Rapids Theatre and was wondering if many cabs will be outside? I know getting one from the Hard Rock area is easy but do many come by the Rapids Theatre after concerts? I do not want to end up having to walk all that way at that time of night to the Rainbow Bridge. A biddy of mine went there for a concert last summer and said it took him 15 minutes to finally grab a cab, having to go ask a cop in his cruiser of any cabs will...More

Just call Blue United Taxi and arrange for them to pick you up at the Theatre. Downtown Niagara Falls, particularly Main St., is not exactly a hotbed of nightlife. Better to be safe than sorry and call in advance.
