Lots of reviews of this facility gripe about the staff at various concert events, but in my experience, many are volunteers and change frequently. My recent concert experience here was just fine. The venue seems small from the outside and even from the lobby, but it opens up quite large in the inside. Seats were comfy, temperature was great. Lighting... More

Seems to be patron friendly- easy parking- exiting may take some time from west lot- lots of concessions stands- great for us baby boomers- Dianna Krall concert was excellent- our 3rd concert there in past 4 years- still an above average venue

The theater is now sponsored by Verizon, but is just as nice. Its one limitation is size, as it is a small venue. But the acoustics are amazing and the close quarters does give everyone in theater a respectable view. The lower lever is the best, and worth the price increase for a special event. We had lower level seats... More

This is a nice place to see a concert. It's easy access on/off of I-30 and parking is easy. However, you can't take drink/food to your seats. In other words, if you buy a soda, then you have to finish it in the concession area or throw what you don't drink away before you go to your seat.

Unless I'm mistaken, this venue is not called the "Nokia" Theatre anymore, but is the Verizon Theatre. Anyway, we traveled from Austin over the holidays to spend the weekend in Fort Worth and, more specifically, to see the Rockettes Christmas show in Grand Prairie! (That is my favorite holiday show, and I will travel about anywhere to see it!). I... More

Had to pay $15 extra just to park at the theater, on top of the cost of show tickets. Disappointing!

The Nokia is easy to get to and parking is good. The theater itself is laid out nicely and you can get refreshments there. The performance we attended was beatiful and am looking forward to going again soon.

Good venue, poor "jumbo-trons" but great sound. Saw Daniel Tosh from a box (kind of far) and Tedeschi Trucks Band along with BB King. It's much more intimate than a basketball or concert arena; however the camera work and screens which we increasingly rely on, particularly with seats near the edges, is LowDef. Several people commented. However, this place is... More

Comfortable, but could be cooler during the actual concerts. Security is excellent, food and drinks pricey, but expected. Some concerts have an issue with the sound, depending on where the seats are. But for the most part, prefer going there that any other concert venue in the Dallas area.

Been to numerous concerts here and the place is a gem in the middle of the metroplex!
