We recently saw a concert here. Not knowing what to expect, we arrived early to pick up our tickets. The box office employee was super friendly. The theater itself is small and it seems like there isn’t a bad seat there!

Awesome concert with guest, Charles sang many of the show's songs and his own also. The Franklin Theatre is always a pleasure and now with additional parking downtown it is easier to get to.

We enjoyed a show here and the sound was amazing. This gem is maintained very well. Only seats a limited number of people so shows sell out.

The drinks were cold and refreshing and there is not a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are wonderful as they have spent a lot of money renovating.
