They are working on raising funds for new seats. Some are fine, but many are broken. The events that they run here, from indie films, music events, and live theatre are wonderful. One of the reasons Harrisonburg keeps making the best places to retire lists.

We have attended music concerts, bands, theater productions and a great variety of different movies normally not shown in your big time local theaters. Small venue.

I've never seen a "bad" movie at CST, but the uncomfortable seats take getting used to. Maybe it's time to have them replaced?

Attended a theatre production here written and produced by a local artist. Enjoyed the performance. The theatre is cute, seats are comfortable and it accommodates a fairly large gathering.
