Very nice venue for seeing entertainment. Beautiful old theatre. It is unfortunate that the surrounding area is not nice.

We love to go to the historic Bardavon Theater for different events but our favorite time is after the Parade of Lights parade through the City of Poughkeepsie. It's always a special Christmas movie and it brings you back in time. The walls are full...More

A trip back in time to elegant theaters of old. Great acoustics, sight lines, experience. Movie nights, lots of national headliners, prices lower than Manhattan.

Looks like they've only posted events through June on their website. Not sure when or how often they update. You might try an e-mail or a phone call. Sorry.
