First time visit. Seats were tight but not uncomfortable for these plus size bodies. Restrooms down long flight of stairs. Sound was incredible and the Gaithers never disappoint!

Beautiful venue-art deco, so not as ornate as some other older theatres, but charming in its own right. We went to see Charlie Parr and Tedeschi Trucks and the acoustics were great, and I don't think there was a bad seat in the house. They...More

if there is food it will be served in one of the adjacent halls. I did not seek out food; but, it is obvious it is not a big part of the the pre-performance ritual. There are decent places nearby.
