The location of the Old National Centre was great, really fun area with lots of people walking nearby. The building itself was gorgeous. Only issue we had is that the room we were in for our concert did not have any seats, which was fine, but it would have been nice if the floor was a bit slanted so that... More

We went for a bodybuilding show and this place is awesome. The architecture is amazing the old building is showing some wear and tear but it is really neat. They have a bar about every 10 feet which is good!

I have seen so many up and coming performers here, many who are A-listers now. A more intimate setting than you'd fine at the Fieldhouse, Ford Field, or Klipsch. Highly recommend seeng as many shows here as you can!

The Murat is a great place to see a musical or show. The building is historical with all the architecture structure. It is easy assessable from downtown Indianapolis. We have see many shows and musical here. It is call The Old National Center now.

The balcony clearance is so low that it obstructs the view of the top of the stage if you're seated behind the poles. Also, there is a flat when you get toward the back of the section so that the seats behind are not elevated and you can't see over the people sitting in front of you. They shouldn't even... More

The Murat Theatre provides a space for live entertainment near Indy's thriving Mass Ave. Originally constructed in 1909, the Murat has recently been remodeled to seat 2600 for performing arts productions. It is located in the Old National Centre which is showing its age in a tolerable way. We saw Motown the Musical there tonight. We thought the box office... More

This is a nice venue for shows. The orchestra seats under the balcony are just so-so, but most seats are good. In upper balcony it's best to be in first 3 rows of the balcony. Sound is good, and it's a cool historical building. There is reasonable priced parking at the venue, but if it's full we like the church... More

The theater is absolutely beautiful. We saw Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers with Martin Short. It was a great venue for this type of concert, very up close and personal. However it does need some updates. It can get very crowded in the lobby area, with long lines for concessions. Also, at the concert we attended, there was... More

Just witnessed "The Head and the Heart" at the Old National Theatre. Great venue. It is so much larger than I expected. Plenty of space for foot traffic and items/food/drinks to purchase. Great charm only built in an earlier time. The place can really rock when witnessing a quality act.

My first time. I loved dance as a child. With other subjects including school, I had music lessons, two instruments and quit. Finally, I got to see this unique experience. I have always loved the movement of dance as I do a symphony or opera or wonderful play, As I see it, it is always a dance, no matter if... More
