The theater has awesome seats and the sound is great. The hall itself is small and is old, but we go there because it is close, the cost is reasonable and the bookings suit our taste.

So... Ratt in concert at the Keswick Theatre was a first date experience. We arrived early and we were interested in having a drink somewhere downtown. We asked if the theater had a bar and finding out that they did, we went inside instead. After...More

You typically don't go the a concert to mesmerize yourself in the concert hall, but for the Band, and the particular sound that the hall provides. The sound and acoustics provided by the Keswick Theater are excellent. Anyone who finds a band that they like...More

This place holds a nice size crowd but you don't feel crammed in. All the seats are good and the sound is also. I've seen concerts, comedians, a couple other shows here over the years and have never been disappointed. Its not brand new so...More

The small size, relative to other venues, means you can pretty much see from anywhere, provided you're not behind a tall person. :) The theatre is in desperate need of renovations, however, so I really hope they find a way to make repairs soon!

Been here before, was hoping they had fixed the air conditioning, but no, it was unbearingly hot. Same old seats, tiny and uncomfortable. Same old bathrooms, perfect if you are at a concert of 500 or so. This place holds about 1500. Really dissapointed in...More

We saw "Jesus Christ Superstar" on Good Friday. We love the theater; small enough to feel intimate. The production far, far exceeded our expectations. The cast was superb, staging was inventive for a small space (the aisles are used in crowd scenes and the Cross...More

This is a nice historic theater for concerts and similar shows. I have been there twice and there really isn’t a bad seat since the theater is quaint. The seats are smaller than I would prefer but it’s workable for a show. To be honest...More

You can get to an orchestra seat without climbing stairs, but restrooms requires steps. Solution: several good restaurants near the theater; have dinner there and use their facilities

Yes. There actually is a restaurant right next store that was very busy and a Greek place across the street which is very good.
