If you want a smaller venue to see a musical group, this is the place to go. No matter where you sit you'll have a great seat. Good sound system. Always enjoy going to the Crest!

I have been to many concerts here. Theater was built in 1912 and has been beautifully restored to the elegance of that era. Lower seating and balcony.
