This was a great venue. It looks like the old theater of the past. With beautiful balconies and ornamental work. The acoustics made it very easy to hear the speaker. I loved it. Great place to see an array of acts.

Traveled from Ohio to see The Wood Brothers. This beautiful, intimate venue was an enjoyable experience. The seats were comfortable, it was very clean, and the historic vibe was awesome. No bad seats on the place. Would come back.

Attended the Erick Baker concert and came away very impressed with the theater. I studied up on the theater's history. Enjoyed reading about Houdini and other vaudeville acts performing there in its early days. They've done a good job refurbishing and maintaining the interior, and...More
