“Great old theater”
Review of Tower Theatre

Tower Theatre
Attraction details
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The Tower was proably a breathtakingly beautiful theater at one time, and it is still "nice" if you can imagine how it looked in its hayday. The brown paint, or is it gold, that is on the majority of everything is a bit depressing, but it is still a great place to see a show. There is parking to be found for free if you know the area well enough and if you are a public transportation kind of person, you are in luck with the train and bus terminal being right across the street.

It really is a great place. The only reason I gave it an average is because it is not in the best neighbor hood. And most concerts are at night.

I've been coming here since the 70's and still enjoy the shows here.. There is a pay lot on Rt 3 where the Trolly tracks cross that charges only $5. The few blocks you have to walk makes up for all the chaos you avoid with the traffic around the theater.

The sound is great, with good sight lines. The staff is friendly and helpful. The concessions are the same rip off you find at all other venues.

I went to see Gotye for a concert at Tower Theater. The sound was great and the seats were very comfortable. I like the overall set up of the theater, it's old fashioned but that's what I prefer. Definitely would go back!

The theater itself is cool, the parking is bad. Street parking only and I don't know anyone who has ever been to the tower and did NOT get a parking ticket.
