This theater has worn many hats in its 100+ year history. Now it's a popular event and concert venue. The Midland's original architecture and decor can still be appreciated, but some elements of the space are starting to show their wear - especially the carpet. Too many spills and tears!

I recently went to a Beach Boys concert at the Midland. It was a wonderful evening of music and was enhanced by the Midland's atmosphere. It is a beautiful venue with comfortable, padded seating. It was a perfect evening!

Great place to see one of your old favorites or an up and coming band. Also a good location to see popular stand-up comedians.

Saw a show here this month. This theater is very fun to see and explore in, but there were some disappointing things. (1) Sticky floors. It was really gross as my shoes stuck to the floor. I imagine this is due to the serving of food and drinks at the venue and a poor process for cleaning. (2) Very few bathrooms. For a venue of this size I would have expected for some remodeling to have been done to add more stalls.

I have attended several concerts over the last couple years, and each time I enter the theatre my breath is taken away. The classic looking theatre is beautiful and great, whether you are hearing a rock band, or classical instruments. Personally, I attended the Piano Guys (twice) with a more traditional seating arrangement, and X Ambassadors, which was standing room only. Although the seating can be somewhat cramped from row to row, there isn’t really a bad seat in the house. There are different teers on the lower level, which allows you to see even when standing. All of the workers there are very friendly, and we were asked several times if we needed any help. The lines can sometimes be long, especially for the restroom, but that’s to be expected. Overall, it’s a really great venue for a performance of any kind!
