I have been there many times for Broadway shows, movies, entertainment. If you are in the area you should check it out. The arcade is always open, but they dont always have plays or movies. You will fall in love with Proctors

Oh Proctors... You're not the prettiest theatre around, but we love you because you're a theatre in the heart of Schenectady and you bring us amazing international shows and performances right to our little town. Went to a couple of performances here. Small theatre, but...More

I've been several times and it's always amazing, the history, the acoustics and the volunteers. We've seen shows and movies. They give a tour that explains the vaudeville history of the building.

I don't know. When attending a performing arts program I tend to favor the balcony for visual and acoustical reasons. I'd like to hear about the experiences of others who had orchestra seats during a musical production.
