Historic theatre in delightful Mill Valley.

First time for Improv show on a Saturday night. Cute theatre, nice staff, had to sit in left side of balcony though and it was still great.

This theatre is beautiful and intimate. It is full of history. The performances are varied, including music, comedy, and plays. I love to go there and often bring out of town guests just to see the place.

This is a great intimate space. Tuesday night comedy is always a blast. In general, everything here is of high quality, and I really appreciate how close I am to the performers. I feel very privileged to have seen Robin Willimas and Dana Carvey perform here. My kids have been in the Youth productions as well, which are fun to... More

Fact: The streets roll up in Mill Valley around 8pm. However, Tuesday night is comedy night, there are various concerts, plays and events here. The famous Mill Valley Film Festival uses this charming old theater, every year. Mort Sahl appears here quite frequently.

We come to see "Los Pings" here every year. Large enough but still intimate. We also reserve our seats to sit up front. The dancers can be annoying. Should keep to the sides not block the stage.

This place is darling. Try the comedy show on Tuesday nights. They do sell treats and wine in the lobby. The chairs are not very comfortable so if you have a bad back, note they do not offer any lower back support.

This is a very nice theatre but the seating is a bit cramped. It wasn't filled when we were there but I imagine it could be a bit uncomfortable when crowded. Nice comedy acts when we went. Plenty of parking around and a lot of restaurants to enjoy before the show. Wine beer served along with a few snacks. Nice... More

Great HomeTown Venue with world class acts. Friendly staff and ambiance. Good place for comedy or to go dancing or to hear some excellent music. And it is a great place to watch your kids' friends in hometown productions on their way to stardom. I really enjoy this place and value this venue for Mill Valley

Came across the Tuesday comedy nights at the Throckmorton when staying in the area for a month and went along a couple of times. Having been to comedy clubs before I know they can be patchy but I thoroughly enjoyed both nights and the relaxed hosting by Mark Pitta. Nice touch is the performers making themselves available for a chat... More

This is a fantastic little theater but big talent. The ONLY drawback is the seating...crummy little seats and tables crammed in. But the rest is wonderful.
