Saw Peter Frampton accoustic tour here. The seating arrangements allow for a good view of the stage. Enjoyed the place; only they had some kind of technical problem that interrupted the concert twice. My wife had been here before and all went well.

Very pretty and well taken care of theater, a great place to go with family. One of my new favorite places to bring the kids. Would much rather spend my money here than a big time box office theater.

The Virginia Theatre has been beautifully renovated so if you haven't been in a long while you will be pleasantly surprised! Comfortable seating, beer and wine service provided by Farren's in the lobby for some events and great staff!

A beautiful facility, nicely maintained with a wide variety of performances. While view lines are good, seat rows are tight for those with longer legs. Still for central Illinois, a great location to see a show.

Went to see an old Cary Grant movie here this summer, and it was such an enjoyable experience. Honestly, it turned out to be the highlight of my family's stay in Champaign-Urbana. Such a beautiful theater with tons of amazing offerings throughout the year. You...More

The Virginia is a beautiful historic theater with a ton of different programming throughout the year. Movies to musicals to comedy and more, for all ages. We always have a fun time!
