I'm not sure what's going on, but typically I've like attending the Altria Theater, however, in recent years ticket prices have sky-rocketed. Ticket prices seemed to have nearly doubled for the base ticket price and 50% on the service fee. I don't think it is...More

Our second time here to see Gabriel Iglascius (Fluffy). Design does not have a bad seat. Acoustics are great. A little intimidating to get to mezzaine or balcony seats ( until you find the elevators). Well lite parking garage is adjacent to theater.

Sadly, it's not open as a venue to view. Take a look the next time there's something there you might want to see! (I just checked the website to make sure there are no special days when one can simply visit.)
