Beautiful Historic Facility

Missed the performances but enjoyed the guided tour through this magnificent historic landmark. This is a must see place for anyone interested in small venue quality performances.

This is one of those success stories that come along in the world of preservation. The theatre here is small, intimate and quite charming. I can't see how one could have a bad seat for just about any kind of a program. The staff was very helpful and pleasant and is largely made up of community volunteers. If a question... More

Went to a Patsy Cline and johnny Cash show which was great. Most performers interact with the audience. People even dance in the isles when music is such. Most shows only cost $25.

No crowds, free parking, great balcony seats, charming old opera house. Fun community theatre "Arsenic and Old Lace" on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Only $12 admission. What's not to love. Probably not exciting for the youngsters, but for old timers like me a treat. Walk a street over for a delicious, inexpensive Mexican dinner.

I was there for a Weight Watcher meeting - they still have the bars on the cells on the one side of the building. It kind of creeps you out - I guess they say it is haunted.
