The Grand in Macon is a wonderfully old and posh opera house that has hosted just about every act imaginable over the years. The Christmas Season will bring individual artists while Broadway acts will roll thru most of next year. There's also not a bad...More

First visit to this locatkon was to see Carpenters Christmas. The building was awesome. Reminds me of Fox Theater in Atlanta. More renovations planned in 2018. Easy parking. Comfortable seats.

Saw the Nutcracker here. The theater is beautiful and acoustics were good. A few stairs to the balcony, so avoid that if stairs are a problem. Parking a bit difficult, but overall a great venue.

Drove down to spend a night in Macon to see a concert here. What a great atmosphere! The only strange thing is the drinking rule but it certainly wasn't a problem...just strange. In all, we loved the place.

The grand is a "Grand Ole Dame of The South." In 1908, a production of Ben Hur was shown. A treadmill was installed in the stage to make the live horses and chariots really move. Houdini used the trap doors; one still is used to...More

Suggest you call the box office (478-301-5470). I know they conduct group tours. They can tell you if there is any possibility for you on that date.

I personally have never sat in those seats, but I've never heard anyone complain about sightlines, with the exception of the boxes.
