Fabulous small venue for this most amazing dance troop. Sound and lighting was great and the dancing was absolutely amazing. Appeared to be a sold out event! Comfortable seats.

A great venue to attend concerts. The history of this theatre along with the acoustics make for an enjoyable experience. The venue could use some washroom renovations.

I was very surprisingly impressed with the venue. The concert sounded great. Although it is old, the architecture makes the experience unique. Getting drinks is rather challenging however. If another artist that I liked came to preform here I would definitely go.
