The way theatres should be. Small venue that hosts a variety of events; we were there for the Barenaked Ladies 2017 tour. Within walking distance of Church Street and its restaurants and bars; hotels; etc... They have drinks and snacks available in the lobby.

Looking forward to another Discover Jazz Festival ! I enjoy the jazz and dance shows they bring to town, and also attending and supporting local and sometimes new artists.

We loved this old theatre. The acoustics were great - clear and spot-on. Seats were comfortable and well spaced. The charm of this place won us over as soon as we stepped in through the door. It's a must-see when you visit Burlington!

Went to the Flynn last night for the first time, had seats in the back row of the orchestra section and still felt like we were on stage. Old charm without feeling outdated. Would definitely go back!

Traveling from Philadelphia to see Brian Wilson, we didn't know what to expect at the Flynn Center. It's not much to look at from the outside, in fact it's somewhat depressing, but the inside tells another story. The Flynn has been the center of Vermont's...More
