The outside of the building is impressive to view. Inside, it felt crowded. Seats were comfortable but worn. Restrooms are on the lower level and there was a huge line both before our concert and at intermission. The people running the sound did not do...More

There are two rooms to see a show here. The big ballroom is terrible. It is a flat floor, not like a theatre. I won’t go to a show there ever again. The Murat Theatre is about average. We have seen a few musicals there....More

The floor is almost level, so don’t go there expecting to actually see a play. You won’t be able to see past the person in front of you. Don’t waste your money.

So, this building is absolutely stunning. What a beautiful facility. The acoustics of the concert that I saw were really good. The band sounded great. But, I just wish I could have seen them. The “ballroom/music hall” is flat and level with no seats and...More

First time here last month and I have to say I enjoyed the show very well. The location on the circle is great, (as long as you can find parking) and its smaller than I thought going in. That turns out to be a good...More

The old Murat Center is a sight to see even if there was NO concert!!! An old Masonic Bldg now converted to concert venues with an Egyptian theme.

Will provide further input from previous post. I have never experienced such stupidity in my life as was seen with going to Dancing with the stars. This venue should be in the red for that night with all the reimbursements they should pay back out....More

We had tickets to Dancing with the stars 2/2. We were at the theater almost an hour ahead of time. They waited so long and took so long to get people inside we missed half the show. Will never pay hard earned top dollar ticket...More

Great effort by the band but acoustics awful! From 16th row we could catch about a third of the lyrics. Not the artist just a bad sound system. Bass overloaded not tweaked for vocals. Waste of money.

We saw Kid Gorgeous by John Mulaney in this beautiful theater. The exterior is gorgeous- touches of stained glass in an enormous building. Parking for the venue was easy. There are options for every price point: street parking, pay lot, valet. The show was sold...More

There are many major hotels in the downtown area. Did you mean the Marriott instead of Murat?
