Noted in National Geographic Traveler for its superb acoustics, the 1881 Opera House was an important stop on the old Vaudeville circuit. Today's schedule is diverse, from folk, rock, classical, and jazz. Recent renovations include a new steel roof, sound system and theater seats. Relaxed, intimate and all seats have a great view. The Opera House is located in the heart of Jim Thorpe's historic district, just a quick stroll to pubs, restaurants, lodging and shops.

This is my husband and I's second time here and we are already planning our third visit! The sound is amazing but most of all we love how awesome all the people are. Its a very fun laid back atmosphere. You can dance, or even stand at the stage with your drink right in hand!

Came to Jim Thorpe to see one of our favorite bands, The B Street Band. They played at the Mauch Chunk Opera House which holds about 380 seats. Great concert and at $20 a ticket, it doesn't get any better than that!

Going to the Mauch Chunk Opera house takes you back to a time when things were simple. Having just seen a concert there featuring a tribute band of Simon & Garfunkel the venue was just perfect.

Had a great time seeing The Band there. Wonderful to have some complimentary catering. Bar offerings were limited but welcome. Ceiling is peeling, but that's part of its charm. Very from the balcony was incredible!

The Opera House at Jim Thorpe is beautiful. The sounds are wonderful.The building is very old, but it is a great place to go see a concert or show.
