Symptom is great!

Don't be fooled that you will be bored or go to sleep. Lots of fun concerts! Check out the coming season. I especially like the movies.

I have enjoyed both the Symphony and plays at the Schnitz. I love the decor and although the seats are "cozy" I have never had an experience I was not happy with. The ushers are wonderful and intermission provides a nice opportunity for a glass of wine and a chance to mingle.

I have seen bands and stand up comedians here. The theater is large and impressive. The lobby drink service is quick and they know how to deal with large crowds. Lots of good bars and restaurants nearby for pre or post eating.

If you have the opportunity to see a show at the Schinitz, it is always worth it. Whether it's music or dance or theatre, the inside of the lobby and the theatre itself is lovely to look at and take in. Support art!

The "Schnitz" is a fantastic place to see a concert. DO NOT MISS an opportunity to see your favorite performer here if they show here.

What an awesome place for symphony's, concerts, plays, lectures!!!!!!!! The restorations that were made in the mid 80's gave new life to this wonderful building.... But it wasn't always like that, in the late 70's the 'Paramount' (as it was once called) was a place for movies and concerts.... such as the 'Catch a Raising Star concert series' that were... More

The Oregon Symphony played the soundtrack for this movie while it was shown on a big screen. It was the best time I've ever had watching this movie, and I LOVE this movie!! I've also seen several musicians perform here, and I've never had a bad seat. This is one of my favorite venues.

You really don't have any other options for music in downtown Portland. The Schnitzer has great acoustics, interesting architecture and all seats have an unobstructed view of the stage. It is centrally located near lots of parking if you go after 7p when street parking becomes free There are several upscale restaurants nearby and drinks are sold in the lobby... More

The acoustics are good, and it is a lovely building. I attend music events here and always enjoy it. The ushers do a good job.
