“Number one Boulder venue!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

This has to be the best venue ever in Boulder..I've seen many live shows and one movie here and it never fails to impress me with acoustics. It's an Art Deco masterpiece and quite comfortable if you sit in the "comfy" chairs.
If you're visiting, find out who's playing and plan your stay around that night!

We visited this theater for a comedy show and loved the venue. I will look for an opportunity to go back for another show.

“Maybe I'm too old . . .”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

The stacking-chairs seating is for the birds. But nobody sits down, so it shouldn't matter. Except if you just keep wishing that everybody would sit down so you could enjoy the show.
It's a Boulder tradition, so you can forgive a lot--but I'd rather see my favorite groups at a venue where I can see them (and sit comfortably for the experience).

“Great Fun at Etown!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

We drove over to the theater after dinner without knowing what was going on. I went inside and talked to someone who explained that Etown was a radio broadcast and there was live music. Actually, Etown was celebrating it's 21st year on the air. So we stayed. Great bluegrass music and a fun evening. If you have ever listened to/watched Garrison Keillor, then you would have loved this show. They also had a 19 year old, Zach, who was incredibly talented and had been signed to a label. A bargain price ($20) and very laid back entertainment. Old theater has very comfortable seats. We sat in the balcony and the sound system was very good. We heard everything. Highly recommend Etown and the Boulder Theater!
