Showed up over an hour early after purchasing my tickets in advance. See a massive line for the box office so I go to a security guard and ask him if that is the line for will call. He tells me it is the line for Purchasing Tickets, Will Call, and Comp Tickets. I get in this line of what... More

This was my first time to Foxwoods and this theater. I was surprised at how big and beautiful it was. The seats were very comfortable and the sound and screens were great. Only issue is getting so many people in and out. There were very long lines and we ended up waiting on 3 lines because the staff kept misdirecting... More

This was the first time going to this venue. We just saw the Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas special. No matter where you sit you have a decent view without obstructions from the people in front of you. The line seemed long to pick up our tickets but we only waited a few minutes as the lines moved very quickly.

The theater itself is enormous, and visibility and sound are generally very good. Security lines are long but efficient. If you attend a show during the week, you'll likely have a decent experience. Weekend sold-out shows, however, are a nightmare. Plan to arrive an hour ahead because parking is nearly impossible (took a solid 20 minutes of circle around and... More

I tried to surprise my husband with tickets for this show as he is a huge fan. I purchased tickets for us and our 13 year old to this show. Unfortunately, nowhere on the Grand Theater website did it say "unsuitable for anyone under age of x" , nor did it discuss content in any way to suggest it was... More

I recently attended a Mary J. Blige in concert at the theatre and it was a wonderful experience. The theatre is indeed grand and quite spacious with comfortable seats and a great view from Row W.Though she came on a bit later than scheduled, the atmosphere in the theatre was hyped. The opening performance was great and I really enjoyed... More

Even if you dont get the best seat in the house the big screen allows you to see the show from anywhere. The sound system is good and the entry is organized. Buy tickets before the show online and dont wait in line. Comfortable well spaced seating adds to the experience.

My husband and I recently attended 2 concerts, Kool and the Gang and ZZ Top. Our tickets were comped and we got to the box office to receive our tickets around 7 pm for the 8 o'clock shows. I-95 on a Friday after work prohibits us from getting there any earlier. I assumed our seats were going to be in... More

The security arrangement at the Grand Theater seems like it was put in place to make guests believe that everyone would be properly screened and they would feel safe while attending a show. After seeing more than 6 shows in this theater recently, I think the whole thing is a facade. A few hours before the show starts, they set... More
