I've been to shows in bigger cities and we should be very thankful for this wonderful venue! I don't think I realized what a gem we had until seeing the size of other venues that charge much more for tickets!

The Grand Theater is a beautiful old theater that hosts a wide variety of acts from national shows and comedians to kids shows that local school kids are bussed in to see. The employees are always very friendly and knowledgeable.

Parking is available on the street or in neighboring bank lots for evening performances.
Is that male statue up front to the left, naked?

Response from solofirsttimer | Reviewed this property |
There is no such statue at Grand Theater that I know of. You are either joking or have a different city in mind
Is there still a Wurlitzer organ at the Grand?

Response from Penny W | Reviewed this property |
Yes, there is. It can be raised and lowered from the orchestra pit and has been used for several venues. We're very fortunate to have Dan Larson as an organist for this beautiful organ!
