Local production of Agatha Christie's Mousetrap was great! Performance was sold out, but we were able to get in when some patrons did not show up. For a local production, this was very enjoyable. The theatre is small, and a funny shape. Maybe if the productions continue to sell out, they'll be on a bigger stage.

A restored 1920s gem of a place to watch a movie or local event of any kind. Have been there many times over the last 10 years.

The Panida is a nice historic theater, but it's a bit cramped and parking can be difficult as well. I would still see a show here, but it's nothing spectacular.
