  • It's old. It's musty. It's hot. And it''s grand. It is everything an old venue is supposed to be. Except... it lost a star for bad sound at the Air Force Band performance. Despite whatever other negative things intelligent, comely, and sagacious people (ahem, me) might say about him, the sound was great when Phil Banze ran the place. So, yes, I know the sound can be done better than it was done. So... Do better and get your star back? Good.
  • Very old and historic facility. I enjoyed my experience but some of the seats are directly behind poles.
  • Attended a dance recital and the only downside of the evening was parking. But that is always the case with anything downtown
  • What a lovely old theater. It's a fantastic place to see a performance. Not a bad seat in the house!
  • Gorgeous venue, indeed a vintage opera theater, restored by Mercer University.
