Very nice place. It is much nicer inside that what you see from the downtown street. I attended a show performed by B.B. King and the seating was comfortable. The atmosphere was very relaxed. The renovations that were done was money well spent.

This theatre has a long and storied history in downtown Pensacola. Originally a stage theatre, it became a movie theatre in more modern times and fell into disrepair. It was resurrected as a stage theatre and recently renovated and beautifully restored to its original grandeur. Now is it home to the symphony and to traveling stage productions and touring theatrical performances. Arrive early to soak up the history and see the beautiful architectural details.

Pensacola area residents have walked under this marquee to enjoy music, dance, comedy and drama for many years. A night out at the the Saenger is always a great time.

Finding and attending entertainment productions in historic theatres is sort of a hobby with me-- Ambiance always great, most shows very good. BUT this is one theatre I probably won't' visit very often---seats are unbelievably small and uncomfortable. (And I'm called 'petite').

A theater from long ago. Great for music, plays, and opera. A must visit when in Pensacola. Restored a few years ago to its former grandeur.
