  • This is a beautiful historical theater but if you are going to see a show do not get the second tier. Pay more and be in the orchestra section. The acoustics were not as good.  more »

  • I visited the Altria Theatre for the first time on October 22 for the Switchfoot+Relient K show. First of all, I was in complete awe everywhere I looked. This theatre is absolutely beautiful! I would come again just to admire the architecture. It is obvious that a lot of money was invested into this place. They didn't skimp on the house sound system either–d&b is a premium brand and it sounded incredible even in my far house-left seat location. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. I look forward to my next visit!
  • This is such a gorgeous theater with all the intricate design inside. It's also pleasantly set up, so pretty much anywhere you sit, you'll have a good view and good sound.
  • Drove up from Va Beach to see Alice in Chains . This is a cool venue for entertainment . Lots of bars , bathrooms and a great staff . Sound system is not as good as the Norva , but this a larger venue . Most definitely worth checking out , located in VCU area of Richmond .
  • Went to see Bill Burr. The staff was very friendly and we got to our seats quickly. The renovations are beautiful.
  • Great venue, you never miss the show even if you have to go to the bathroom, the audio is everywhere!
