  • Beautiful building, well kept. Its is best if you can get your tickets early, as the box office is rather small. Parking is almost non-existent, and costs more for special events. The closest lots were $20 even tho the website advertised $10. The lot a block over was $15, and i assume lots further out were cheaper. The horse buggies circle this area and there are several restaurants nearby. The restrooms were spacious and clean.
  • Great place to see a concert! Also, they show good classic movies all the time. Inside has a very nostalgic look and feel.
  • Really nice atmosphere inside the theater. Acoustics were surprisingly good for a building of this age. Enjoyed the show and would attend another event here.
  • Went to see Wizard of Oz Ballet. The Ballet was wonderful, could of had some more scenery. The theater needs some simple maintenance, paint peeling off the ceiling and walls outside the main theater. It would also be nice if they policed the inconsiderate patrons playing on their cell phones, fidgeting in their seats, or getting up and down during the performance, especially the ones with kids. Great time to teach if you leave your seat for the bathroom, you can't return until the intermission. Other people have paid for their tickets as well and should not have to be disturbed during the performance. This should be reminded prior to the event just like at a movie theater.
  • One of the best venues in Memphis. There is not a bad seat in the house. I wish the ushers would do a better job in keeping other patrons from recording on their cell phones.
