Bought tickets in advance for me and my mom who needed handicapped/disabled seating; I explained that she has a scooter but could transfer to a seat, if necessary. Did not realize how TIGHT the seats were for her to transfer to a regular seat--tough for her to get up and down since she has both hip, knee and ankle issues.... More

A friend and I went to see Theresa Caputo - the Long Island Medium and it was a great venue for this show. Remember this is an old theatre and they do not have elevators, just stairs. The seating was fine for us but tall folks may be slightly uncomfortable.

First time there to see "The Classic Rock Show' and i had a good time, doesn't look like there's a bad seat in the house. Everyone I dealt with was great, easy to get in and out after the show. Would go there again to see another show. Only downside was the sound (sometimes the vocals would get drowned out... More

I saw a show here at Christmas time and it was great. There isnt a bad seat in the house, and the theatre is beautiful. The seats are a little small for a 6 foot 5 guy like me, but my 5'7 wife was very comfortable. Parking was easy and took no time to leave the venue after the show.... More

I have been to several events at the Hershey Theatre and consider this one of my least favorite venues. The facility is beautiful. The staff and policies, not so much. We always have to stand outside like cattle until they decide to open the doors to the facility. Once the doors are open, you'll wait in the lobby area like... More

Went to a Piano Guys concert at the Hershey Theater. It is a beautiful old theater. They have free parking which is great although it is a bit hard to get in and out. All the seats have a good view. It is a good venue for events.

We went to an event last night. There was plenty of parking available, the lines moved quickly to get us in out of the cold, the staff were all very pleasant, and the theater is beautiful.

Have been to many shows here, from comedy shows to musicals to concerts. The venue is gorgeous and a nod to some of the best theaters anywhere. A real treasure!

First-time patron: A steep learning curve! Yes, the theater is beautiful..., but who can see it? You wait like herded cattle and then are unceremoniously pushed out following a poorly acoustically modulated performance. I don't care how strongly the theatre's staff makes the statement online, and I read it, but the Theatre's entry and exit logistics are horrible. Experienced cold... More

Beautiful theatre with a wonderful interior. I've been here several times for concerts and classic movies, but they also show broadway shows, entertainers, dancers and so much more! Even if you're far from the screen or stage, I still feel like there is always a great seat in the entire place. Staff is friendly and helpful, parking is abundant, and... More
