There really isn't a bad seat in the house. The entire interior is art deco style and the productions are always top notch. When you finish seeing your production,just walk half a block down to Beth Marie's Homemade Ice Cream to top off a wonderful evening.

One of my favorite places for a night out in Denton. I love our local theater and have been a season ticket holder for several years. They put on a good variety of productions including dramas and musicals. Denton has some amazing local talent.

The Campus is a gem featuring real talent. The renovated former orginal movie theatre of Denton has been reshaped for live theatre with every seat providing a great theatrical experience.

They have refurbished a great old theater and turned it into a beautiful and spacious community theater for local productions. The sound system and stage lighting are state-of-the-art. Great place to enjoy a play, recital, or musical.

This beautifully restored Art Deco theater is home to an active schedule of Film Festivals, Musicals, Theatre Productions and more. An experience at this theater offers goers a night of great atmosphere, stellar performances - due to numerous Professional-level actors and performers coming out of Texas Woman's University and University of North Texas - and satisfying after-theater night-life.
