This theater is beautiful, and not something you’d expect to find in Rockford. This is my first time being back since seeing performances in Chicago, and I have to admit, this theater is much nicer than the ones I’ve been to in Chicago.

Have seen several shows at this venue, all have been great. Just saw Three Dog Night there tonight. Reasonable prices, easy to get to, plenty of parking and the center is just beautiful.

Went to see the show Riverdance at this theater. Haven't been there in years. Forgot how beautiful it is. I don't think there is a bad seat in this place.

Views are fine but pitch between seats is tight. Try to get seats in the first row.
