Every seat had a great view! My children could see the stage, even from the mezzanine level (age 5 & 2)! Parking was right across the street and very convenient. Lovely venue! I would definitely go to a show there again!

Any time you get the chance get the front or close to from seats. Honestly you are so close to the people showing it's great. If not your type of fun. Mid, balcony seats are still great too. Always recommend checking the place if someone you want to see is coming around town

Small, comfortable, intimate venue. Seeing a concert is a snap. No hassle. Park, eat, see the concert. They make it a really enjoyable experience.

We were here with my son for a kid's show. There is a parking lot on the other side of the road. The building is visible from the outside, look for the signs. The inside is really impressive. The stage is a bit small, but visible from either direction.

The outside shell--lobby and ticket area--are generic and modern. However, they, thankfully, have saved the old theater, which is a real landmark. Also, the place is not huge, so there is a feeling of intimacy.
