Drove down to spend a night in Macon to see a concert here. What a great atmosphere! The only strange thing is the drinking rule but it certainly wasn't a problem...just strange. In all, we loved the place.

The grand is a "Grand Ole Dame of The South." In 1908, a production of Ben Hur was shown. A treadmill was installed in the stage to make the live horses and chariots really move. Houdini used the trap doors; one still is used to...More

Visit here regularly to attend concerts and plays. The restoration is very impressive. The only negative would be the temperature control. Due to difficulty in maintaining even temps throughout the building.

This is such a lovely venue. And if you buy their $10 mug (secure sip top), you can bring your beverage in with you. We bring our cocktails with us (or you can purchase them there as well). Every seat is great.

The facility is beautiful, very elegant with good acoustics. In the future I would check more carefully about the particular show to attend before purchasing tickets. We saw "Downtown" , a local production of uneven quality and political overtones that were unexpected. I would recommend...More

Suggest you call the box office (478-301-5470). I know they conduct group tours. They can tell you if there is any possibility for you on that date.

I'm not certain but I believe the answer is no. They may do group tours but not individual ones as it is a working theater and not a tourist attraction per say. Best bet is to call the box office and ask if they open it... More
I know that center seats are preferable but has anyone sat on Row A Orchestra Left or Right? Sometimes the first row is difficult to see from in some venues.

I personally have never sat in those seats, but I've never heard anyone complain about sightlines, with the exception of the boxes.
