“Don't get seats close to the stage”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

This is a small theatre which is great but I would suggest that you don't get seats close to the stage. From that point the stage sits up so high that we were just looking at Frank Sinatra Jr's feet. It was difficult to look up the whole time to see the show.

There was also a very drunk loud man right behind us and the people with him were just as loud just trying to keep him quiet. Dirty looks in the first half of the show did nothing. They did eventually leave during intermission but I wish theatre staff would have checked more on the audience. We're going there again soon and hope to have a better experience.

Spokane Symphony's venue. Excellent place for a concert and just to look at the Art Deco inside.

Beautiful setting for the classic symphony, not a bad seat in the house. Everything that appears here is perfect.

“YES!”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

I went to hear the Spokane Symphony in this gorgeous, classic theatre. Sound was wonderful and the theatre is so elegant I could almost feel like I was transported back to the 30s.
