A throw back to early 20’s. Very easy parking and the staff and ushers ever so friendly. Seats very tight since people 100 years ago were much smaller. The exit for the garage is on the right side of theater. Nice theater.More

I LOVE this theater. I have seen Led Zepplica, The Night Hawks and several other shows here I don't believe there is a bad seat in the house. I love the oldness and the sound is great. I would highly recommend seeing a show here....More
