“beautiful theater”

Stanley Center for The Arts
Ranked #2 of 19 things to do in Utica
Attraction details
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Although this building was in terrible disrepair years ago, it has been restored to all its former elegance and more. We have seen several shows and heard several musical concerts there and always find it to be totally enjoyable. Its now an elegant old theater with a great ambiance.

I have been here for a few plays, musicals, and performances. The building really brings you back to old architecture and helps you appreciate how things were once built. My only complaint about the place would be the heating and cooling, as it seems each time I go it's either warm with stuffy air or chilly to where I need a sweater.

The venue is beautiful although the seating becomes uncomfortable after an hour or so. The shows they bring in are usually excellent. It's a great night out and offers some culture to the area.

What a gorgeous setting! We recent attended a concert here and were so impressed. The Stanley is just beautiful - the lobby, balcony, all the ceilings, lighting, chandeliers, fixtures, the theater itself - they are all amazing. And that the historical significance of this structure has been preserved says volumes about the caring people in Utica. It is a must see when you are in the area.

We saw Chicago (the band) with the Utica Symphony Orchestra. WOW !!!! What a venue... Not only was the sound excellent but the theater was absolutely beautiful!! If you are in town you should check out what is playing. The feel of broadway in Utica. I think most seats (if not all) would provide a good view. Enjoy!
