Thanks for taking the time to post this review, and we're happy you had a good experience. We do have to give credit to Uncle Vinnie's Comedy Club, who was renting our theatre to present Vic's show. - David

Parking is the greatest problem. The town has limited parking and the business nearby prohibit using their lots. You must arrive early unless you live nearby. The theater is historic and quaint. The modernization has improved the appearance but design makes it difficult to move...More

We were fortunate enough to attend the 80th anniversary of Benny Goodman's Concert at Carnegie Hall recently. This theatre is an excellent venue, with good shows and favorable pricing.

In shows I’ve attended most seats were pre-sold. Check by calling if a specific show is sold out. If not the box office there will be able to accommodate you.
