The Imperial Theatre is noted in the National Register as critical to the character of the Broad Street Historic District. At ninety-two years old, with its immutable history, Edwardian style structure and current function it is the only medium size traditional proscenium theatre capable of flying scenery in the Augusta area, and for this reason it is a critical component of the infrastructure for area performing arts groups. It is the only performing arts theatre within a 150-mile radius that connects artists and audience members to historic social entertainment by providing a gracious and historic setting for all area citizens.

Saw Beauty and the Beast here. Really appreciate older theaters, and the sense of history they bring. That said, The Imperial needs an overhaul. The place is very worn, the ceiling plaster is cracked and peeling, and restroom space is inadequate. They even shut down...More

Historical theatre surprisingly still open considering what condition it was in. I would have paid double the price just for air circulation, ideally air conditioning. Women's restroom does not accommodate for the number of people attending an event. Stairs to seating are dangerously uneven without...More

I suppose at one time this was a nice theater, but now it has fallen into disrepair. The seats are shabby and very uncomfortable. Not enough bathrooms for patrons and not enough concessions staff. It seems like they could have saved some money on that...More

The Imperial is definitely a positive experience. A smaller, older theatre with a lot of ambiance. Acoustics are phenomenal and there is not a bad seat in the house. Due to the smaller dimensions current larger named entertainers are not what you will find on...More

This elderly theater offers various local companies a smallish stage for their lower-budget productions. It is a hidden gem desperately in need of repairs, which are said to be coming. An old silent movie house, its bas relief ornaments and other character elements are a...More
