Very cool place to see when you you visit Shepherdstown. The Friday night band on April 28, 2017, Squaring the Circle, was just phenomenal! For a $10 charge, you get to see a great band in a totally restored facility with friendly staff, fresh popcorn and a drink to boot!

How many towns still have an opera house? I mean a real, old-fashioned, this-used-to-be-where-the-action-is opera house? Not many, that's for sure. The furnishings are kind of beat, of course: They have to be. It's an opera house. And by the way, the chairs are mostly overstuffed and just so comfy. Get a beer or something a tad stronger on the... More

Was traveling with my wife and were looking for fun and entertaining venues for either music, theater and entertainment. We left several messages on their answering machine inquiring and leaving a call back number as we were excited to see what they offered. However no response and no reply ever. Their message did not say they were closed and their... More

This is an old, small theater in the heart of Shepherdstown. We have been here a few times. Once we came and heard a great band from Ashville NC. The other day we came to view a classic movie, and we found out, to our delight, that on Mondays the movies are free! We did buy some delicious popcorn with... More

This old-timey opera house in the middle of town hosts a number of different kinds of entertainment. We happened to be in town during one of the presidential debates do took advantage of their free invitation. We viewed the debate on a huge screen with like-minded individuals and had fun hooting and clapping with everyone else. We were fortunate to... More

This was my first time visiting the Opera House and I will gladly return when they have a band that I want to see. However, the reason they got a 4 instead of a 5 is that they seem to have a major climate control problem. Went to see the Black Lillies last night. The room is charming and intimate.... More

This is a small space, meaning that you're up close and personal with performers. Also some movies are screened here, and it's a venue for the American Conservation Film Festival in the fall. There's an awesome selection of fruit sodas plus beer and wine. But the popcorn is to die for! They melt butter on a hotplate and pour it... More

Staying for a wine dinner at bavarian inn. BFFs son's band Empresarios was incredibly coincidentally playing at opera house. Had been there for movies but never live performance. Fun,fun evening.

Visiting this theater is like stepping back in time. Whether it is an art film or live performance, it is always a special event.

The Opera House - a place that always makes me smile. Friendly enthusiastic employees (mostly college students) greet you, sell tickets and refreshments - and offer good advise on the best beers. We usually come for their eccletic films, but this time it was for live (very live) music - The Hillbilly Gypsies. They were over the top - and... More
