“Beautifully redone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

It was designed by the famous Rapp & Rapp Company of Chicago, the theatre opened in 1931. Construction costs then were an unbelievable $1.5 million. It is furnished and decorated in the art deco style, the elegant theatre has gold and silver leaf, gold-backed French mirrors and crushed velour. The timeless and historic theatre has been expanded and restored.
It is home to the Erie Philharmonic, Lake Erie Ballet and the Erie BROADWAY Series. It also hosts a wide range of lectures, entertainment shows, weddings and receptions. The theatre hosts more than 150 events per year.

“Piece of beautiful history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

This theater is on the Historic Register & one of only 2 or 3 left. It is used for many shows & the lobby is used for receptions & proms. It has been almost completely remodeled & updated. Waiting for the governor to release the last of funds to finish this jewel

This theater is classy and out shines any theaters in NYC that I've been to. Erie is fortunate to have it.

The Warner is truly a showplace. It's been beautifully restored and continues to improve. Go see the Erie Philharmonic for a real treat.

“Beautiful architechture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

It is totally worth visiting this theater while in Erie. The entire building takes you back to glamorous days and you can picture yourself living in an era where dressing up for the theater really meant dressing UP. Its a true must!
