  • No seat is further than 70 feet from the stage so you can see everything. It's an amazing historic venue for a show and the acoustics are fantastic.
  • My wife and I saw "A Tuna Christmas" at the here a few years back. It was hilarious. The Grand is a Galveston icon. The building is incredible. The main theater is beautiful. The seats are a bit small but aren't too uncomfortable. Go see a show, you won't be disappointed.
  • Dramatic trip to the past with post-Ike restored glory from the 19th Century.
  • The decor and seats are vintage! Beautiful to look at, but large and tall people beware: the seats are small and packed closely together.
  • Welcome to Texas! The Rude Star State!
