This is not fancy but very nice and a great place for even families to take school age children to experience theather. It is always well organized by many excellent volenteer staff always willing to offer help and a smile. The prices for most events are reasonable and many book quickly.

had the opportunity to perform at this beautiful theater that is a wonderful surprise to see in Livermore. It's right downtown, so it's easy to get a bite or drink before or after one of the surprisingly varied and interesting performances they offer. I have seen hundreds of theaters around the world, and for a town of this size, this... More

Bankhead is a small venue with great views and acoustics for every seat. We saw Timothy Schmidt ( of EAGLES/POCO/STEALY DAN, etc) there recently. It was great $60 seats were about 8 rows back. Wife had wine I had Bailey's and hot chocolate (ok they gave me the Bailey and a packet to make hot chocolate)

The seating is terrific all through the theater. I thought I'd have difficulty hearing from where we sat, but it was excellent acoustics throughout! We have enjoyed Handel"s Messiah here on several occasions.

The Bankhead theater is a lovely theater. there are no "obstructed" seats and the sound is managed very well. The entertainment that is brought into this venue is broad in spectrum - Celtic, to Country to Opera - with lots of stops between. There is parking - free! very close by. Come on out for a Saturday or Sunday matinee... More

Really love the Bankhead; the variety of shows and talks is wonderful. From Chinese Drummers, to Nobel laureates on a variety of topics, to the kids version of Nutcracker. Comedy shows, musicals, renowned musicians and performers, there is always something for everyone. Never a bad seat in the house; the acoustics are good, and it retains the feel of a... More

Last night I watched "Mary Poppins" in this theater and I have to agree with other people who have reviewed this venue. There isn't a bad seat in this theater. It is located in a center that has a great little park in the middle surrounded by wonderful places to eat. It is a family friendly theater that I would... More

Not a bad seat in the house. In fact, I often sit in the back. easy to stretch legs, get out to restroom at intermission! Suitability for different ages obviously depends on performance showing. But a big variety of programs meet all tastes.

Start with convenient parking and not a bad seat in the house followed by some great presentations with a broad range of performers and you have Livermore's jewel--the Bankhead. I've never been disappointed. It's nice having a large choice of Restaurants nearby,as well.
