“A minature Fox Theater”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The box office manager let us go in and look around and take pictures of this beautiful decorated theater. It felt like a minature of the famous Fox Theater in Atlanta.

“An Architectural Gem”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We enjoyed a concert at this renovated theater and were utterly charmed by the 1920s decor. Don't miss the art work in the lobby.

The artwork in the lobby is the work of local artist Jeff Williams. His information can be found on the Rylander Theatre website. We are so fortunate to display his beautiful paintings as they compliment the Art Deco decor of the theatre so well. We are so glad you enjoyed both the concert and our beautiful theatre!

“Victorian Splendor adds to the Performance”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Some years back Americus made a commitment to preserve its downtown. Included in the revitalization was an extensive restoration of the Rylander Theater. Whether you come for a performance of blue grass, combined choirs of Albany, Macon and Americus, or a Sumter Players performance, the experience is a double treat because of the venue. Make it a special evening: have a drink at Floyds at the Windsor Hotel before the performance, amble two blocks to the theater, and sink into a luxurious seat and enjoy the entertainment.
