The show, Home Free, was great! We were seated in the center near the front, and the sound quality was very good. The venue, however, was just okay. It was one of the oddest "music halls" I have seen as it seemed more like we were in a very old gymnasium designed as a pit with high, bare walls that... More

A nicely maintained venue offering shows of many different varieties. Seating in balcony is decent, if you sit a little farther from stage. Otherwise you lose a little view of stage. Floor seating offers best views and sound, but I prefer the risers at end of floor seating area. Get there early for popular events because parking is a challenging... More

Acoustics are OK - but everything in building has not been updated since the 70's. Person in front of said they sat in the same chairs for their first concert 40 years ago. Chairs were so close together that you couldn't get up to buy a drink without disturbing people. Basically everyone in the row had to stand up for... More

The Hungry Detective and friends travelled from Western Pennsylvania to this venue for the Gordon Lightfoot show on a Friday night. Cool music hall that's has a nice floor plan and seating. I walked around the second level and can honestly say there is not a bad seat from the balcony level. VERDICT: Guilty of providing a great venue with... More

I remember Packard Music Hall back in the Kenley Players day. What a great venue to see performances, plays and concerts. It's so nice that it's making a comeback. The location is perfect, and parking is free. There isn't a bad seat in the house. It doesn't get any better!

Packard Hall is a multi-purpose auditorium which is charming but not the highest level venue around. The real advantage is the ability to catch a upper tier show without traveling to Cleveland or Pittsburgh. I'd recommend getting seats that are not on the floor. Floor seating is padded folding chairs because the hall still has dances on Valentine's Day. Parking... More

Came here for a Jay Leno performance. Disappointed to find seats were merely padded folding chairs, wired together. No arm rests, narrow seats. Very hard to find our seats, not marked well and definitely not enough event staff to help peopled find their seats as well. Fortunately I didn't go for the most expensive seats which were on level ground... More

Jay Leno put on an excellent performance. The venue was more of a high school auditorium in need of updating and cleaning. The seats were too close together and the fabric covering seats were stained. There were no allowances for individuals who require handicapped assistance. There are no elevators to reach balcony seating and many individuals with canes struggling to... More

Saw Jay Leno there on March 4, 2016. The parking is weird, you just park wherever if the small lot is full. This proved to be a problem when we couldn't find our car after the show. I was glad to see I could get a large beer for $5 in the nice lobby, but was disappointed at how tight... More
