He's always awesome! Looking forward to the new album show. We're up in the first row of the balcony. Plenty of leg room, which we didn't have downstairs the last visit.

This theater is in great shape. It has been beautifully maintained. You can attend a silent film with the mighty Wurlitzer Organ playing. You can see concerts with well known artists. Always a treat. The tickets are often very reasonable.

This renovated theatre is a joy to visit, with the Wurlitzer organ to the old styled seats. It brings back memories of days gone by, watching Saturday matinees. Don't miss Stoogefest every summer!
