“Cultural gem in beautiful Portsmouth, NH”
Review of The Music Hall

The Music Hall
Ranked #7 of 48 things to do in Portsmouth
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed October 20, 2013

The Music Hall (and its smaller venue, The Loft) is one of the leading lights for cultural programming in a city (town, really!) rapidly becoming known as a culinary hot spot. Great indie films, concerts, a wonderful lecture series (including Writers on a New England stage) and films of important theatrical and operatic events from the National Theatre in London, the Metropolitan Opera, etc. There's a nice bar and a rather strange decor in the ground floor (think Middle Earth meets House Hunters, for some strange reason). The Loft is an equally wonderful venue. Smaller, more intimate and with great seating and acoustics. The Music Hall is a treasure in this community.

Those who travel to see Portsmouth must see The Music Hall. This old theater has been completely redone and brings in wonderful movies and shows all year round.

This evening was our first experience at the manificient Music Hall of Portsmouth, NH.

Arrived a few minutes early, picked up our tickets and headed straight to the refreshment counter, where the offered a variety of Annabelle's ice cream favors. Tonight, chocolate chip raspberry. nice way to sart the show.

it was quite an experience to enjoy a movie in a theater that makes you feel like you've stepped back in time. Comfortable seating, pretty much every seat has an excellent view of the screen. Acoustics, very good.

The lobby is a work of art, with comfortable seating, a bar (not open tonight), and the most beautiful rest rooms in downtown Portsmouth.

Next ime your in Portsmouth, make time to see a movie or a show at the Music Hall. You'll be glad you did!

Love it each time we go! We have seen many musical acts there and they generally start on time, and deliver a good concert...and the lobby is so nice too!

If you happen to be in town and can catch a show at the Music Hall, it's a great venue! If you can't catch a show, go grab a drink in the lobby bar! The newly (~4yrs) remodeled lobby is incredible - looks like something out of a David Lynch movie set! Absolutely beautiful.
