Used some of the space for a photoshoot with some local Flint talent. The grounds are beautiful to use for senior pics, wedding shots, and lots of other shoots requiring scenery and a nice backdrop.

We recently went to The Whiting in Flint to see Classic Albums Live perform the Beatles Abbey Road concert. Our seats were great. Comfortable & we had a great view of the awesome concert. We had to wait a little bit in line for drinks which were, of course, overpriced but at a concert that's expected. All in all, great... More

Given the options for culture in Flint are limited, I guess the Whiting is ok. We came to see Hal Holbrook in "Mark Twain Tonight". The lobby was clean, but very dated. They offer a coat room and a bar where you can get drinks prior to shows and during intermission. They appear to have a special drink for various... More

My husband and I have lived in the area now for 29 years. I must say it is always a treat to go to The Whiting. The ticket office has a very nice staff to help with choosing good seats. Just all the people who work for The Whiting are very friendly and helpful, whether it be the ushers or... More

Not a very big venue but the acoustics are great! The seating is very comfortable, even for bigger people.

Watching anything here is a plus because of there small size. Seating is comfortable and enough leg room for folks like me over six foot tall.

It isn't the Fox, in Detroit, but the acoustics and resonating sound are beautiful and rich. The seating needs updating, but overall, any event will be fun. Attendees may feel at a slight distance from the stage in some areas. Also, the odd seating in the side balconies can cause height shock to some. However, it is reasonably suited to... More

If you watched the Democratic Debate on March 6, you saw the Whiting. This is a beautiful multi use facility that has been a staple of the Flint area for more than 40 years. As a kid I went here to watch travelogues -I performed the nutcracker here (and it is still done) I had choir concerts here, my graduation... More
