Went to see a Christmas concert here the other night. I was very impressed with the entire layout of the theatre. Not a bad seat in the house. While the theatre is old in age, it definitely doesn't disappoint. Would go back. Recommend balcony seating.

I attended a concert here and was very pleased. The place is huge and the seating is quite comfortable. I was able to park across the street which was very nice especially since I was alone. The sound was also great. I'd love to attend an event here again. The attendants were also very helpful.

I have been to this theatre several times and it is like taking a step back in time to the grand days of theatre. Recently we saw the Russian balatte and it was a grand experience. There is not a bad seat in the house and they font build theaters like Saenger anymore.

The place is outstanding from the moment you walk inside. I made it to my seat and look up and just say "Wow". They serve snacks and beverages during the show. The only problem I had, this was my first time, the seats on the left side are even numbers and the right are odd. The center section is normal.... More

The summer classic movie series is about to end. Sept 17th is the last movie, Gone With the Wind. I have really enjoyed seeing these movies on the big screen in a luxurious setting

The Pensacola Saenger is a classic theater. After significant renovations a few years ago the interior reflects a look of craftsmanship and attention to detail. The seats were improved and viewing is fine with the gentle slope of the floor. We prefer seating in the center orchestra section or the first few rows of the balcony . Sound is usually... More

Older theater with great views of stage. Small venue that allows great acoustics. Go in through the side door on Intendencia Street, much quicker entrance than the front door on Palafox. We sat left orchestra seats. Great view & acoustics. Friendly, helpful staff. Will definitely return for more shows! Concession prices were typical. $6 for mixed drinks & beer. Also... More

Great show in a wonderful theater. The Saenger is a very comfortable and accessible place for a show, be it comedy, ballet, or symphony. Centrally located near Seville Quarter, there is plenty of nightlife and activities for after hours!
