Saw a show here this month. This theater is very fun to see and explore in, but there were some disappointing things. (1) Sticky floors. It was really gross as my shoes stuck to the floor. I imagine this is due to the serving of...More

I have attended several concerts over the last couple years, and each time I enter the theatre my breath is taken away. The classic looking theatre is beautiful and great, whether you are hearing a rock band, or classical instruments. Personally, I attended the Piano...More

We have attended many music, film, performance and movie events over the years in The Midland. There is very convenient parking right next to the theatre and most of the time there is space available and not at ridiculous prices either. Enjoy your event, enjoy...More

I've been here several times. Most recently was for Peppa Pig alive. The theater has been beautifully restored. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. I wish the walls could talk.

I love going to shows at the Midland. Great décor and environment. I always like to get there early and walk around and imagine what it would have been like new. The management is doing a great job at keeping this a lively and important...More

Beautifully refurbished older theatre. I don't recommend the balcony seats though, just not very good viewing, pay the extra and get seats on the floor. Lots of traveling Broadway shows come in here or try the new Kauffman Center if you are in town and...More

I have seen a couple of concerts here. Very nice, cool old theater. Not very big so the experience is more personal.

First concert here for Kacey Musgraves. We had tickets in the GA Pit. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and intricate. Could easily spend a lot of time exploring it with your eyes. It makes you feel fancy being there, although so do $10 beers. As...More

Really enjoyed seeing a music act here recently. Bought tickets late and got seats way in the back (Section 405), which turned out to be a lucky stroke. We could see and hear everything on stage with nothing blocking our view. Will definitely chose to...More

This is a beautiful restored theatre. Easy access to restrooms and bars. I just don't think their acoustics are as good as some other places

If you sit in the lower level/floor it has folding chairs in the first third and there is very little elevation so I won't sit there as I'm short and usually can't see anything at all. Also, for many things people on the... More

I parked in the garage just to the north of the Midland. It's under the building right next door and was the most convenient when we went. The weather was icy that night so we didn't have far to walk. It is $10, but it was... More
