It is worth the price of admission to marvel at the beautiful ceiling! The theatre is completely re-done as close to original as possible. Go for the theatre and enjoy the ever-changing lineup of concerts, movies and plays. There is something every month for everyone....More

Entire community rally's around the shows here. From men's groups to local schools. Movies are classic and cutting edge.

This wonderful old theatre brings in all sorts of events...plays, concerts, movies. Each event gets a personal introduction. It is a joint community effort keeping this place going.

I live local and have been to the Panda several times... It's the kind of theater you don't see anymore. They offer local talent, concerts, special viewings of movies etcetera... worth going just for the architecture and Ambiance... Very cool

This restored theatre is a highlight of living in Sandpoint. They show a wide variety of current movies, plays, performers and have recently implemented dinner theatre. I encourage anyone visiting Sandpoint to try to attend at least one event in the theatre.

Having lived here for 25 years (and having danced on stage, and watched my kids dance, too!) I still get a thrill everytime I enter the doors. It's like stepping back in time! For a comfy and romantic experience, head up to the balcony (no...More

Went to a Christmas Matinee - stylish old theatre with a great vibe. Loved the entire experience. Everyone should see a movie in a theatre like this at least once.
