While the events are varied and interesting the bar selection is horrid. We were served small(6oz) plastic glasses of very cheap grade bar wine. For the price of $7.00 per glass one would think they could sell a little higher quality beverage.

Auburn Public Theater is the best place in Auburn for entertainment! Our favorite thing to see at the theater are the comedians. They always bring in wonderful talent. Can't wait to try out the cinema-all new seating and many more showings.

One woman show, funniest ever. You must look into the line up for this venue. It promises to make you laugh and smile. Nice to have a glass of wine during the performance.

We hope to attend the concert on September 10th. We have never been to the theater and not sure where to select our seats. Would it be too loud or too close to sit in the first few rows? Are we better off further back? Thank you

The theater is small so I would suggest sitting in the middle area . About the 6 or 7 row area . You can see everything even if you sit toward the back. Hope this helps
