Beautiful building with top notch acrostics. A real variety of entertainment/entertainers. Right in the centre of town with plenty of nearby parking. Viewing the ceiling alone is worth a visit.

The centre is smaller and well-suited to theatrical or musical productions of smaller scale. Very nice décor and comfortable seating. Somewhat reminiscent of some of the "finer" movie theatres of the "sixties". An enjoyable evening out with lots of available free parking in close proximity.
