Smallish venue, great sound for the show I saw. Concessions had a good variety, prices are what you would expect for a show. Can take drinks and snacks into the theater. Efficient entry/bag search.

Saw Chris D'Elia comedy show! Great atmosphere, drink selection was good, if a bit overpriced. Seating was great! Loved the stage area! Super easy access to all things downtown, too!
