We have attended many concerts and movies held at this location. It is a charming place and wonderful venue for smaller shows. It is nice to have this option in our community.

This was my first time visiting the Opera House and I will gladly return when they have a band that I want to see. However, the reason they got a 4 instead of a 5 is that they seem to have a major climate control...More

This is a small space, meaning that you're up close and personal with performers. Also some movies are screened here, and it's a venue for the American Conservation Film Festival in the fall. There's an awesome selection of fruit sodas plus beer and wine. But...More
