Good views and acoustics for live performances. New audio and video systems are average or better. Center balcony is my favorite spot.

What a wonderful venue run by local people who care about their town. We saw an excellent live performance that you would not normally expect could be booked in a small town such as Rockland. The people who attended the show really showed their support...More
