Great concert venue!

Went to see joe bonamassa here and it was a great venue. Beautiful theatre and great acoustics. Stayed at the hilton double tree which was right across the street- very convenient.

I've been to the Forum many times and each time have had a different seat. The seats are comfortable and easily accessible. I have not had a seat in the balcony though. The rustic, historic feel of the theater is heart warming. It brings a sense of being in the renaissance era. There is also a decent variety of plays,... More

Have seen concerts and shows here. The acoustics are great and there are few seats that do not provide a good vantage point from which to view.

I have been there a few times to see shows and it has been very nice ! Do not have to travel far but parking sometimes can be tricky but worth paying to park near there than trying to find free parking ( which is just about impossible ).

Visited here for some political event. Beautifully decorated and meticulously designed, Forum Theatre is certainly the best performing space in Binghamton.

Nice sound and overall experience for Riverdance show. Classic decor from the 40's or so, but beautiful. Mezzanine seats are a little tight for big persons. Staff was nice and prompt to help with accommodations.

We visit the forum several times per year to view the Tri-Cities Opera Company performances. It is always a pleasant experience. There is plenty of parking nearby, and a number of good restaurants in easy walking distance (River Bistro, Little Venice, Lost Dog Café to name a few). I imagine much of the staff consists of volunteers and we always... More

We visited for the first time on a Wednesday night to see the play Mamma Mia (which was excellent by the way!!) Before we arrived we attempted to get information about this venue from the website as far as directions, parking, places to eat, etc. I found the website lacking in specific information. I did call in regards to parking... More
