Attended a Marty Stuart/Connie Smith concert recently. Good seating, friendly staff and good sound system. This is our second concert here. Overall good concert venue.

Surprised my husband with tickets to see the Bellamy Brothers at the Brauntex Theatre. We loved the show! It's a small venue, which we liked a lot. The theatre is nice and served adult drinks and a few snacks.

We saw an advertisement for a performance, so we decided to go on a little road trip and check it out. Very nice surprise. The tickets were only $15 each for this little theater. While I expected an old, antique place, I was very surprised...More

The facility was very nice and had comfortable seating but the acoustics were horrible. Saw a concert there and the staff was friendly.
