It was close to the hotel. We walked in and the person at the desk told us we could go right in. We walked around and were able to go onto the stage...got some good pictures.

Beautiful old theater that still has performances - next plays are in the fall. Worth a trip back just to see the place in action.

We were lucky enough to recieve a tour of the renovated theater - the attention to detail truly took you back to the theater's prime. Definitely call to see what's showing - live performances of a true variety are offered.

Great work was done years ago to restore this theater to its original grandeur. It is good to see how it is being used in its present day.
