Recently went to see a Pink Floyd cover band, Wish You Were Here at the Newport. I've been to the theater several times, and they've all been good experiences.

Saw Johnnyswim here with general admission tickets. Love this place! So intimate! There are different elevations, so can find a spot where there isn't a head in front of your face. You can stand on the first floor, so go upstairs and stand on the...More

The newport itself is not a bad place to catch a decent act and good price. Not much seating, but good views standing. Good beer prices not outrageous for concert venue. Well worth going if there's a scheduled act your interested in seeing

It was an interesting night at the Newport. This old theater has decent sound and provides a good line of sight for a variety of people. You have the sunken floor, surrounded by a raised area, and there is a balcony. Unfortunately, the building lost...More

Saw The Griswolds and San Cisco. Excellent show. Acoustics were okay, but this building was originally a theater back in the day. Great views from balcony, plus they had bench style seating in the rear both upstairs and downstairs. Tickets were $5.
