My girlfriend and I were rushing up to the theater as we were a few minutes late. A man decked out in tails and top hat so sweetly said, "We've been waiting for you." We were ushered in and tomorrow seats by friendly staff. The theater is beautiful. We bought the cheapest tickets but had great seats. Art Garfunkel wasn't... More

This venue has a long history in Tacoma. It's a beautiful turn of the last century theater with all the expected old time architecture BUT it also has the old time theater seats which are narrow and tight and downright awful to sit in. Think airline coach seats only smaller. If you like sitting cheek and jowl with your arms... More

This was our second time to see the Red Green Show at the Pantages Theater. A friendly staff person helped us find a really good parking space near the theater. She went out of her way to help us - we were very grateful. The theater is one of the old gems - very beautiful. Restrooms are downstairs - I... More

We recently visited The Pantages theatre for an acoustic concert. Our seats were obtained late and were about as far back as you could get. But this was one of many surprises that met us and left us smiling. From the moment you walk in the doors, you are aware of a comfortable, friendly, but historic setting. From the carpets... More

The Pantages is one of those great historic theaters. No matter what you are seeing, there is literally no bad seat in the house. There are drinking fountains, but they are hard to find.

The concert I attended consisting of a single singer and piano accompaniment had excellent sound. The seats are comfortable and the aisles unusually wide allowing one to stretch out legs. I enjoyed the theater design and old style ambiance. The front row was right against the stage and did not look comfortable. There was almost no place for patrons to... More

This was our first theater show in Tacoma and we were very impressed. The building may be relatively small but the stage views and sound, even from near the back where we were seated were excellent. The interior is pretty without being overdone. Street parking was easy to find.

This theater is an old gem in downtown Tacoma. It has the classic charm of older theaters but is host to incredible talent. Parking is difficult during the week, but on weekends and evenings it isn't difficult to find a decent inexpensive spot close by. It's on the perfect street to find something to eat for dinner or lunch as... More
