This is an old 1920s theater converted to a live performance venue. The old movie days are long gone- but there are plenty of bathrooms ( not always the case in old theaters) and the acoustics are great ( probably a remnant of being an old vaudeville venue). Head up to the balcony to avoid the moshpit on the floor and for great sightlines. The seats are comfortable and this is the perfect place to see up and coming bands ( or established acts that cannot fill bigger venues) up close and personal. On the night we were there, half the audience seemed to be from Boston-- and why not. Portland is an amazing place, and this theater-- though certainly not new- is a great place to catch a show.
