A nice venue for an old movie theater. It looks like there is not a bad seat in the house. Only issue we saw was duplicate seats being sold. Don't know if it was a computer glitch but the staff seemed to handle it quite...More

Great place to see a show. Small venue. Every seat is a good seat. It may not look pretty but you would have a good evening.

I love the Kent stage! I have seen many shows here and it is comfortable and sound quality is always great! It’s a little tattered and frayed around the edges but what a great history. They do have an organization called friends of Kent stage...More

Very diverse concerts. Fantastic prices. Not a bad seat. Love going here to see a concert. Can’t go wrong seeing performance. The singers also take time afterwards for pictures and autographs.

I pulled in for an excellent Leo Kottke concert May 2018. 1) EXCELLENT acoustics! 2) EXCELLENT sound team and gear! But then Leo’s not an exotic equipment mix. 3) Nice staff. Cons: 1) They might be the original 1902 seats. Not real comfortable. 2) There’s...More

I am sorry, I do not know. We had assigned seating. You might call them and check. They certainly seemed like they would be willing to answer questions.
