We visited this place to see a concert. As others have stated, there isn't a bad seat in the house. We set in the balcony on the 3rd row and I felt like we were close to the stage. The sound was good and the overall feel was wonderful. The stained glass windows are gorgeous. The seats were comfortable. This... More

Went for a comedy show, seats are comfortable and basically all have good views.Theater used to be a church but does not look so much like one on the inside compared to the outside.Parking is conveniently located across the street behind the Levine Museum & you can purchase a parking ticket pass for five dollars.

This beautiful location seats under 1,000 people and there are no bad seats or angles in here. Getting in and out is a little crowded since it is so old, but go see a show here, you will love the look off the old stained-glass windows at the top.

We had our first visit to the theater to see a Colin Hay concert in February. All the normal cliches apply-- there's not a bad seat in the house, etc. It is a very intimate setting. The acoustics were very good. There are beautiful stained glass windows. Everyone was very helpful. I had purchased our tickets online and had also... More

Saw a great comedy show here on Friday night. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Picked up our tickets at Will Call without a hitch. The theatre is small but the seating, as others have noted, is nicely arranged. The only thing is the seating is a bit tight. We heard a lot of people complaining that they... More

The seats are setup nicely, which offers great viewing from all angles. The staff was friendly & courteous. The theater is within walking distance from most uptown hotels. I would visit again!

It is wild, as when we see one of our favorite performers coming to town and see that they are going to perform at the McGlohon Theatre, we book the event right away knowing we will have a great seat and show, as the performers seem to love to perform here... it is a gem of the Queen City and...

Attended a rockin' concert in the church known as McGlohon Theater. I have seen Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes in several venues from Red Bank NJ to Jacksonville FL. The McGlohon Theater is my favorite: good acoustics, not a bad seat in the house, and room to dance at your seat, in the aisles, or by the walls.

My husband and I have been to several concerts at the McGlohon. It's quite an experience when you step out of the chaos in Charlotte into such a small, quaint and serene environment. The seating is great. The seats are comfortable and provide for enough leg room so as not to feel "captured". The McGlohon is a treasure!
