Cozy, historic venue. Very good acoustics but uncomfortable seats. Sight lines could be improved on main floor. Great 90 minute Saturday afternoon concert. Terrific musicians and vocalists. A wonderful walk down memory road.

We had front row balcony seats for the Eagles tribute band (7 Bridges). It was phenomenal! The theatre is quaint and very pretty and they offer many types of genres for entertainment. We will be back!
