We went there for a music show and were impressed. It's a great old theater that is in good shape. We were greeted by a good staff and had a great time. The theater is in an easily walkable section of the historic district.

We really enjoyed walking by the building every day as it really reminded us of the theater from the movie Back to the Future. The architectural design is beautiful and unique. We loved the old school 50's style sign wrapped around the front.

Was able to visit the theater for the Sarah Jarosz & Richard Thompson concert as part of the Savannah Music Festival. It's a charming old place, a throwback. Acoustics are ok but not great.

We attended the Marshall Tucker Band concert here. It is beautifully decorated from the 1920s era, I believe, with balconies, gorgeous light fixtures and great details. Comfortable graduated seating made it easy to see even over tall people. Definitely will be back.

This is a beautiful theater and a great venue for a concert. We had wonderful seats on row H. The space to cross others is amble so that you aren't getting your feet stepped on when people have to get out.

I meant front row balcony on my previous post. Orchestra Center or front row balcony are my choices. The venue is so small there are no far away seats like there are in an arena.

I'm sure there is. I noted it is posted on the marquee. They do give tours of the building. Times are posted in the doors.
