The "road" shows that come to Proctors are as good or better than the originals! Saw Book of Mormon on b'way and then at Proctors. Frankly, the Proctors production was better, for example.

If you get seats, try the ones by the entryway, we find them to have the best view. Concessions takes credit cards now, but it doesn't always work - so bring some cash

We always wait for a children's movie, and take the kids to Scotia movie theater. It is very unique experience and very cost effective for a family as prices are half the price. We always sit up in the balcony.

Hi. I would like to know what would be a decent a section in The Proctor's Theater to see the Lion king. I am looking for seats that are reasonably priced and where one can have a good viewing experience. Ideally, the section/seat should have nothing obstructing the view. The person that I am taking has some vision problems, so your help would be must appreciated. Thanks

It's a small theater, so even the rows that seem far back are actually quite close. I recommend section A, which also encompasses two diagonally to the stage. If you are able to get section A, center, you are safe to go as... More
