“Great old architecture!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This place is great for shows saw B.B. King there earlier this year and it was a great show. I really love the beautiful design of early to mid 1900's architecture. A must stop for people who like such things.

“Don't miss seeing this jewel....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

A beautiful fully restored theatre, unexpected in a town as small as Texarkana. A must see if you are visiting from out of town or local. They give free tours, that are very informative and interesting. Make sure you check to see if any shows are going on and get tickets, you will not be disappointed.

“Pure historical romance and great seating!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I love the atmosphere of this wonderfully preserved venue. There is not a bad seat in the house! If you see Cirque type show get balcony seats, if you are just there to listen to a concert doesn't matter where you sit the sound is fantastic! It is a wonderful theater and should be enjoyed by all!

“Fabulous theatre and fabulous staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We walked in off the street to receive a personal full guided tour of this magnificent old theatre. The staff dropped what they were doing to give us a free, very informative and passionate tour of this beautifully restored building. The enthusiasm shown by the staff and the historical knowledge which was relayed to us was of a very high standard. You cannot go to Texarkana or nearby without this theatre on your agenda, made special by our guide. If you were lucky enough to be in town during a performance (and they sound many and varied) then this would be a huge bonus.
