The theatre is beautiful, quaint, historic, but the seats suck! They are small, worn, and very uncomfortable. The theatre was built in the early 1900s when people were smaller. They need to tear the seats out and replace with new bigger more comfortable seats. My husband sat next to a very large man who took up a lot more than... More

This building has a nostalgic feel and is a very intimate setting for Concerts. I saw Joe Bonamassa there in December .

Comfortable historic theatre! Every seat is a good one. The bar is very good!!!!! Live the atmosphere and they were very good with getting folks into the building as the line was wrapped down the street and around the corner. Very organized and safe! See you soon for another show!

Made our reservations on their website, it was user friendly and easy to navigate. The staff at the venue was very professional, friendly and helpful. The event was run on time and the theatre is in beautiful, well kept shape. The only downfall is the stairs. They are unforgiving and very, very steep. Still, a lovely, romantic place.

We understand the theater is vintage with small uncomfortable seats and difficult steps to climb. We overlook these things because we enjoy the entertainment however last night's experience was far from enjoyable. The area where we were seated was full of inconsiderate people who chose to carry on loud conversations, many who continued to return to the concession stand for... More

One of the grand movie theaters of the 20s, complete with Organ pit. restoration, good acoustics, consistently good shows, and rather small seats--people were smaller then.! The nostalgia combined with the good acoustics makes for a nice evening. Intermission in the pocket park across the street is also fun if the weather is good

Perfect place to see a concert. Big enough to have a crowd but much more intimate that some of the big places in town. Keep up the great work!
