The place is outstanding from the moment you walk inside. I made it to my seat and look up and just say "Wow". They serve snacks and beverages during the show. The only problem I had, this was my first time, the seats on the left side are even numbers and the right are odd. The center section is normal.... More

The summer classic movie series is about to end. Sept 17th is the last movie, Gone With the Wind. I have really enjoyed seeing these movies on the big screen in a luxurious setting

The Pensacola Saenger is a classic theater. After significant renovations a few years ago the interior reflects a look of craftsmanship and attention to detail. The seats were improved and viewing is fine with the gentle slope of the floor. We prefer seating in the center orchestra section or the first few rows of the balcony . Sound is usually... More

Older theater with great views of stage. Small venue that allows great acoustics. Go in through the side door on Intendencia Street, much quicker entrance than the front door on Palafox. We sat left orchestra seats. Great view & acoustics. Friendly, helpful staff. Will definitely return for more shows! Concession prices were typical. $6 for mixed drinks & beer. Also... More

Great show in a wonderful theater. The Saenger is a very comfortable and accessible place for a show, be it comedy, ballet, or symphony. Centrally located near Seville Quarter, there is plenty of nightlife and activities for after hours!

This is a lovely theatre. We sat in the center of the first balcony, and were able to see the show quite well. The seating is comfortable, but not elaborate. I recommend you allow yourself plenty of time to find parking, and the walk to the theatre. When we went, they had streets closed, and 2 other major events going... More

Pensacola is blessed to have a very talented symphony orchestra. Last nights performance was so good. It is best to get season tickets because some performances are sold out
