Historic and wonderful accoustics. There is also a nice variety of shows. We have enjoyed music, plays and community presentations.

I attended a showing of "The world's fastest Indian" there last year and although I'd seen the outside of the building for the past 25yrs or so, I'd never been in it before this occasion. Just a very interesting place for any type of show.

I have attended numerous events at The Smith and always enjoyed myself. The building is beautiful and the events have been wonderful. I enjoy independent films and live performances. Vickie Lawrence was fantastic. I came with a group of about 12 people and we all loved it. My only complaint is that they don't do it enough.

We love that this stately theater has been renovated and is alive with performances and big-screen showings. It's like stepping back in time with modern conveniences. Notice the twinkling stars on the ceiling if you have the good fortune to attend an event!
