Amazing local theater!

We have been to this venue about 8 times. From a Beatlemania group to a Doo-Wop dinner dance, every time we have had a great time. The theater is old and being refurbished, so... read more

The Sherman Theater is a wonderful place for a concert. The acoustics were great and theater comfortable. I felt very safe in the venue as there was a search at the door and the perfect amount of security visible throughout the show. The venue is very quaint a you almost feel like you have taken a step back in time.... More

We were given a birthday treat of tickets to see Tim Reynolds. The seats and sound were good. The cement floor made the barely heated space even colder. It was not that cold outside and I did feel some heat down the middle isle , but we were on an end area and not much heat there. I was glad... More

It doesn't look too promising from the outside but walking in changes everything. Beautiful chandeliers in the lobby, snacks and a bar. We watched the band "America" and it was just lovely. Motivated fans, great acoustics! Highly recommend!

We have been to this venue about 8 times. From a Beatlemania group to a Doo-Wop dinner dance, every time we have had a great time. The theater is old and being refurbished, so sometimes it has been too hot or too cold, depending on the season. The seats are comfortable and there is no "bad" place to sit. Our... More

This is a small theater with the most uncomfortable seats this side of Hades. It was like sitting on a pile of bricks, in a sardine can, at the edge of a ski slope. The only way to ease the pain was to abandon the seat for the aisle floor.

This is an old theater located in the heart of Stroudsburg. They have concerts and shows at reasonable prices. This is not broadway theater but many of the locals attend the performances but I did not find the talent of a high caliber. I found the crowd to be of a younger age and not many seniors.

Large Venue. A little outdated, but very charming especially if you like the historical feel. I attended a few functions here. There is no parking amenities, but not difficult to find alternate places to park. Can be altered for all different types of occasions.

$18.00 to see a Grammy and ACM winners! Free parking, walked right up to the stage, who cares about the seats! Get up close or stay home and listen to the radio!

I have to agree with the preceding review. Gordon Lightfoot was great as always. The venue not so much. Older movie theater in need of a facelift. The folding chairs are a bit of a joke. Not comfortable. I don't understand how you have a place that could be a great place for concerts, but won't fix it up. I... More

As you read any reviews you need to evaluate where the reviewer is coming from. I will let you know that we enjoy old theaters and their are many in PA! This, however is not one to be enjoyed. It was clean but the original seats were removed and in their place were the most uncomfortable folding chairs I have... More
