Great old theatre. Seen The Beach Boys here. Seats are comfortable and plenty of room. Prices for drinks aren't too bad. Beautiful old theatre recently restored. Theatre is easy to find, right down town.

Been here many times for concerts and plays. Recently remodeled. Just a great Gothic like theater. At one time they wanted to tear the place down. Glad they didn't. Not the best parking especially if something else is going on at the same time.

I would contact the Civic directly. They would be in the best position to assist you and may actually have specific handicap seating.

I believe the seats are balcony seats.Not enclosed loge seating. You can see pretty well from all the seats as it is not a huge Theatre.
