We were so excited to take our grandchildren to Shrek.... the theater was HOT, everyone was fanning and it was miserable. Everyone in the theater was fanning. At intermission they gave away water....not cold! Wish I had my $200 back.

We are regulars at this theater and...while I like the intimate size, the decor and paint job really needs to be addressed. The shows are always great and the attendants are extremely helpful. While the ambiance is not great, everyone seems happy to be there!

The movies are gone now, but there's still magic in the air. Broadway shows are now playing at this theater.

Nice venue. I would have given it 5 stars of it wasn't for the deceptive ticket price practice. They charge $2 extra per ticket than the listed price for their ticket system. They should just raise the price by $2 instead of hitting someone with...More

It was our first time to the Woodlawn Theater; we went to see West Side Story. While recognizing that it's a local repertory theatre and maybe they have many volunteers to help operate the theatre, we couldn't hear the dialogue at all because the music...More
