  • We have been here several times and really like this theater. Small comfortable venue. We hope to return.
  • Fabulous theater. Plenty of accessible seating. Watching movies during the international film festival. Street parking and a public lot close by.

  • The Lobero theater was lovely! The acoustics were great (you could hear every heckler across the theater!), the ushers were polite, and the restrooms were clean. Overall a pleasant experience, though they seem to allow hats in the theater, which may block your view even more than usual.
  • Saw Arlo Guthrie a few weeks ago. Nice, intimate venue.
