comfortable simple event venue

if in the area I would investigate the schedule - there are no bad seats and I would guess they always have pleasing entertainment. Nice, throwback type of facility

A good place with some good entertaines. The biggest draw back is the parking. Super small lot with street parking. If you don't want to park two blocks away get there at least 45 minutes early. Handicap parking is a real premium, 3 spaces!

This arts center offers a lot to the community. They have a variety of different shows during the year. If you want to attend a show, buy your tickets early. It is a small theater, and most shows sell out. Their volunteers do a fantastic job!

Intimate, small town venue. Priority seating will get reserved first three rows. It's run by volunteers and friendly folks. We've been twice, will go again, each time had first class entertainment.

Never have been to this venue before and not certain quite where in Old Town it was, I ventured over from Sedona a little early. The Parking lot was filled and vehicles lined the... More

Seating (chairs) very uncomfortable for attending performances. Bring a cushion for back support. Would love to attend more performances but wont due to the seating.

Claire253, Owner at Old Town Center for the Arts, responded to this review

Of the more than 20,000 patrons who have attended events we have had two or three comments about 'uncomfortable seating' - including the recent review this week. The chairs we use are individual ballroom seats, the type that are often used in resort and conference ballrooms. They are of course softer than a portable or wooden chair but not as... More

We will go back for additional shows in the future as we found this to be a terrific spot to see a show. A couple of minor drawbacks...seating is in chairs... More

Sometimes it's tough to get a ticket as it seems the followers of The Eaton's who own it, are many and deeply connected. None the less, yiu can score tickets to many of their fine shows and should.
