Noted in National Geographic Traveler for its superb acoustics, the 1881 Opera House was an important stop on the old Vaudeville circuit. Today's schedule is diverse, from folk, rock, classical, and jazz. Recent renovations include a new steel roof, sound system and theater seats. Relaxed, intimate and all seats have a great view. The Opera House is located in the heart of Jim Thorpe's historic district, just a quick stroll to pubs, restaurants, lodging and shops.

My wife and I truly love going the Mauch Chunk Opera House. We have seen several folk artists, a rocking celtic band on St. Patrick’s Day, and most recently a fantastic Fleetwood Mac tribute band called Tusk. Everything about this place works. It is a historical gem. Ticket prices are always reasonable, as are the prices of the good beers... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our concerts at Mauch Chunk Theater. What a fantastic venue to see a show. A quaint historic theater with lots of charm and great acoustics. We can't wait to return. Be sure and check it out!!

We purchased tickets online to see Floyd and Us on January 21st. The tickets weren't expensive, the seats (sixth row) were great and the performance was top notch. Lighting, special effects and sound were all exceptional. The show lasted more than three hours, staff at the theater were welcoming and appreciative of our patronage. We walked back to our hotel...

This is my husband and I's second time here and we are already planning our third visit! The sound is amazing but most of all we love how awesome all the people are. Its a very fun laid back atmosphere. You can dance, or even stand at the stage with your drink right in hand!

Came to Jim Thorpe to see one of our favorite bands, The B Street Band. They played at the Mauch Chunk Opera House which holds about 380 seats. Great concert and at $20 a ticket, it doesn't get any better than that!

Going to the Mauch Chunk Opera house takes you back to a time when things were simple. Having just seen a concert there featuring a tribute band of Simon & Garfunkel the venue was just perfect. The opera house which dates back to 1881 is a great piece of history and a great place to see a concert or a... More
