Great little theatre with no bad seats. Has regular shows there so check out the website! Be prepared to park in the street. We parked at the post office with no problems as it was a Saturday nite concert.

Every Friday night the live broadcast is worth the ticket price! Only $5 a head. Best in local old time and bluegrass music. I always listen to the rebroadcast on Saturday evening over the local fm station 98,1 radio.

The Friday night live radio show gets a variety of musicians and there are so many good ones in the area. We saw Stevie Barr and friends and thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

We visited Galax again this year and headed straight for the Rex-- a mid size old movie theater with the first few rows of seats removed so folks can dance to the live music. The band was great-- Zephyr Lightening--string-savvy mom, dad, son and friend...More

I greatly enjoyed the bluegrass show we attended here and had a great time. The Rex is an old movie theater that is being repurposed as a show venue, mostly for bluegrass shows.
