Craftsmanship that shows pride in the work, something missing in work today. Movies and concerts are varied, the theater is as much the point of going there as the show. It never gets"old" going there.

Very nice venue for seeing entertainment. Beautiful old theatre. It is unfortunate that the surrounding area is not nice.

Post Modern Jukebox was more delightful than expected. Each member of the group was an outstanding virtuoso. Audience was treated to not only superior vocals but also fun costume changes and even tap dancing. House was sold out and audience members came appropriately dressed up!...More

I saw Paula Poundstone here because I checked the calendar six weeks before making a trip to the area, and I got the last ticket. Great venue for small scale acts. Apparently a restored 1920's movie theater (has organ)/vaudeville house. Seats to match, though, and...More

Looks like they've only posted events through June on their website. Not sure when or how often they update. You might try an e-mail or a phone call. Sorry.
