Old theater, great show. Sound & lighting was amazing. Two suggestions for theater, add bathrooms to first floor and relocate celeb tour bus staging. The front sidewalk was impassable after the show, to the point of feeling unsafe from all the extreme fans waiting for...More

The Wellmont Theater, although very beautiful, does not compare to other small venues. The security at the entrance was very organized and the staff was helpful. Inside, the staff needs improvement. The rows are not well marked, so without help from the staff, cell phone...More

The Wellmont Theater has very nice shows with a lineup of the latest and some of the greatest groups and stars. It is in a convenient location in the area of some of the many cultural restaurants.

We have been to several concerts in the Wellmont. It is easy and intimate. The bar in the first floor allows you to enjoy the concert standing if you do not like your seats.

We went to see Chris Isaac, who is a fantastic performer! The parking situation is quite an issue and the Wellmont web-site is of no real help in that department. So having found a 20$ lot, we parked and walked to the theatre. We had...More

You sit on a folding chair up and right behind the sound board. The last show I saw here was GA and no chairs so the premium section was good.
