We were so shocked to find a renovated theatre so beautiful in this part of the city. The detail was fabulous and the acoustics were wonderful. I would recommend anyone see a concert in this absolutely beautiful venue!

We’ve been here a few times and have always enjoyed it. It’s truly a beautiful building. I recommend getting there early, as attendees must go through metal detectors and that makes the lines move slowly. Seats can be a little difficult to find, but there...More

We saw the late show of MFM in December. Lines were around the block but went quickly once the doors opened. We got in line right away to get drinks, service moved fairly quickly and they had good options available. Drinks were pricey but large,...More

The theater looks like something out of The Phantom of the Opera. It is GORGEOUS. I went for a concert that was general admission. There were no seats for this event. The floor is tiered, not just sloped, which was a god send for me...More

The theater, alone, is entertaining--regardless the venue. I recently attended a Gala at the Midland--the ambiance took me back to a time one would expect to see Hollywood stars and other attending guests clad in gowns and tuxedos. The architecture and decor was utterly opulent....More

Saw The Piano Guys, the place is definitely historic looking and there is evidence of the place needing upgrades. Squeaky chairs, poor signage to seats/sections. HOWEVER, the acoustic/sound was fantastic. Cant find fault there.

The theater is small enough that there really isn't a bad seat in the house. I personally like balcony seats even though they are further back from the stage because the seats are on an incline so you're not looking at the... More

I parked in the garage just to the north of the Midland. It's under the building right next door and was the most convenient when we went. The weather was icy that night so we didn't have far to walk. It is $10, but it was... More
