“The Spencer Theatre is awesome!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

For a small theatre this is one of the best! We'll worth your time and money!! They always have a great variety of shows and excellent entertainers! I love what they do with the kids in the summer with the Missoula Theatre Company.

“A jewel in a pristine setting”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This was a wonderful gift from Jack Spencer to this community. The stage is absolutely first class in a very intimate setting for the audience. My main objection is the choice of acts but realize that certain acts "sell". I'm disappointed that classical performers or theater are rarely seen these days. We no longer buy season tickets or attend concerts for that reason.

“Most Beautiful”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Probably the most beautiful theater we have ever attended. Like art? It's everywhere. Like views? Open you eyes. Like food? Try the buffet before a performance.

Really nice facility. Staff are very friendly and accomodating.
They have a cocktail area and the restrooms are close to the theater doors.

“Attended Miss NM Pageant”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Gorgeous venue, clean and well maintained, seating in the auditorium was good (not really a bad view anywhere), and good parking schematic. The description from their Web site is spot.
