This is an older theater but it has a great atmosphere and the food by Ellis' Catering is always outstanding. A cool place to catch some top-notch entertainment without having to go to NYC!

The buffett is the best part. The building is really run down and only one ladies bathroom. The talent in the past was much better than the last two shows I attended. They are slowly remodeling but they need to get true talent from the...More
