I recently saw Michael McDonald and previously Englebert Humperdink. These were great concerts and a great venue. Recently the management instituted sippy cups and you can take your drink into the theater. Fantastic. Some shows are very picky about making recordings and taking pictures. Other are not. So bring your phone and feel out whether you can use it or... More

I used to spend Saturdays here as a kid back in the 70's. Even as a young one it was impressive to see. Now that it has been restored and re-open it's even more impressive and brings back many memories.

We went here for a showing of White Christmas and it was magical! The inside is beautiful! The lighting and sound were impressive and they even had an organist playing before the movie. The entire experience made for a lovely memory!

We've been here a couple times and it's been a really good experience, especially when you want to see/hear a performer in a smaller/cozier setting.

I love this old theater. Most recently I saw Bill Maher; I saw "The Book of Mormon" last year, and "Wicked" in 2012. The restored theater is beautiful. I will say that if you have long legs, spring for orchestra seating, because mezzanine and balcony are very tight leg-room wise. Also, lots of stairs to climb to get to seats... More

This is an older theater with a lot of beautiful details. We attended the Nutcracker and it was a beautiful performance.

Great nite. Beautiful venue with a bar inside and restaurants close by, as well as parking indoors near the convention center. I Wish seats in mezzanine had more leg room because the seats were close together, so it was difficult to move around. If there was a tall person in front of you-good luck. You are high up, so if...

Have gone to this venue several times for various shows. If you have long legs, do not sit anywhere in the balcony. The rest of the house the seats are ok. The lighting and acoustics are middle of the road. There always seems to be construction in the downtown area of El Paso. And if there are any other events... More
