“Heavy Metal Concert - blast”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I don't even like heavy metal music much, but had a great time hanging around on the floor - with a bunch of friends - watching a locala band.

“A revitalized old movie house.”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

The Jefferson Theater opened in 1912. It was originally a silent film house, and it also hosted live entertainers including The Great Houdini. The theater had fallen into disrepair and had been showing older films until it closed. In 2009 it reopened after an extensive, restoration project with its gorgeous historical architecture. It is now the seen for live concerts. It is a small venue but the entertainment is first rate. Recently Parachute performed, and Margaret Cho put on a terrifc show for us. The crowd for concerts is mostly young high school and college. With a performer the crowd is a little older. Because of the small venue tickets to popular events sell out quickly so be sure to mark your calendar.

“Great renovation”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We saw Margaret Cho perform there. We used to go to the Jefferson back when they were showing old movies for a few dollars. They have done an amazing job on the renovations. Multiple Bars for buying alcohol. There is also a tasty Taco shop which you can access from inside. Really fun venue. We are going to see Carbon Leaf next month!

“Little film”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

A little film in a little theater is a good way to start your Monticello tour. It's all part of the $24 entry fee to Monticello.
