Went to see Art Garfunkel. Loved the theater, small but quite elegant. Acoustics were just right. We would definitely return for certain acts. Very nice theater.

This was a great venue. It looks like the old theater of the past. With beautiful balconies and ornamental work. The acoustics made it very easy to hear the speaker. I loved it. Great place to see an array of acts.

Traveled from Ohio to see The Wood Brothers. This beautiful, intimate venue was an enjoyable experience. The seats were comfortable, it was very clean, and the historic vibe was awesome. No bad seats on the place. Would come back.
