There is not a bad seat in the house, although balcony is better for view and acoustics. Many popular shows come here and are always fun to go to. Prices are reasonable and when the show is over you have some of the best eateries in the area, not mention the riverwalk is close.

I have attended all kinds of shows and events here. I enjoy it every time. I have yet to have a bad view from any seat I've sat in. Drinks are reasonably priced, you can not take them back to your seat. I wish the seats were a little more comfortable, but that never takes away from the quality of the shows. A great date night or out with the family.

We are long-term Reno Phil season tickets holders and this year included our teen son. This is a nice venue. The recent upgrades are nice. They need either another elevator or a bigger one though.

We’ve been to a few shows here. Parking is easy and free! The theater itself is comfortable and small so most seats are good, others excellent. Happy to have the Pioneer shows!

Great little gem. Looks 'different' from the outside and when you arrive you really wonder what to expect. Once you are in and attend a concert, you fall completely in love. Great acoustics, great orchestra (superb conductor). Overall a remarkable experience, will come again soon.
