Beautiful classic venue

Have been to many shows here, from comedy shows to musicals to concerts. The venue is gorgeous and a nod to some of the best theaters anywhere. A real treasure!

I don't care how strongly the theatre's staff makes the statement online, and I read it, but the Theatre's entry and exit logistics are horrible. Experienced cold... More

Beautiful theatre with a wonderful interior. I've been here several times for concerts and classic movies, but they also show broadway shows, entertainers, dancers and so much more! Even if you're far from the screen or stage, I still feel like there is always a great seat in the entire place. Staff is friendly and helpful, parking is abundant, and... More

The theatre is very ornate and beautiful...will not see buildings built like this today due to extreme building costs. Loved all the Southern Gospel Groups that performed. Only complaint is seats are a little too small and the bathroom are downstairs.
