This Theater is hard to describe as it is so beautiful. The lower level has 27 rows, then there is a balcony which has another 10 (not sure, didn't count them) rows. Both levels are very nicely done. The interior is artfully done with a ceiling painted like the sky. Ushers are friendly and helpful. We saw Jackson Browne there Feb 12th, and the concert was fantastic. I wouldn't hesitate to attend another event here knowing that there really isn't a bad seat in the house. Parking is also easy as there are several nearby lots that average about $5 to park.

If you have the opportunity to go for a day tour or a performance, and you are a fan of old movie houses/theatres, put this one on the list. The city of phoenix did an extraordinary job restoring this property in the late 90s and it will bring you back to another era in the 30s. The architecture and interior decor is outstanding and classic. This is a secret Phoenix jewel in the rough that is worth seeking out. It is adjacent to city hall and tour times are limited.

I'm thrilled that we have such a beautiful theatre in Phoenix. The programming is diverse. Something for everyone. The seating is comfortable and the acoustics are good. It's a wonderful venue.

I went to a concert by the Sweet Adolines and one of the Phoenix Boy Choir. Both were very enjoyable as the acoustics were great. The beauty of the art and architecture lent itself well to the experience.

This place was restored to it's original beauty! The paints and decorations alone are worth paying an entrance fee.
My daughter was in the Performance for the Chinese Art Academy and I was thrilled that for her very first performance that it was at this memorable theatre. We just recently went to the Nutcracker for Christmas 2012 and this place is still as beautiful and elegant as it was 3 years ago. They are doing a great job on maintaining this stately beauty!!!
