It's a beautiful theatre, with adequate seating. Sound is also good. A great venue all around. Although a minor complaint, I'd hope they fix some of their lighting on their sign outside. Some of the bulbs are out, and doesn't do the rest of the venue justice.

The Tivoli has it all, architecture, history and ambiance. There are no bad seats in the house, though I prefer the balcony. The acoustics are great and the staff is always friendly and helpful.

We visited here for the first earlier this year and absolutely loved the place...it oozes history and had a great vibe for the concert we attended. Acoustics were also excellent from our seats.

This is like a smaller version of the Fox Theater in Atlanta,GA. It has been recently taken over by a great music management company, and is getting greater concerts.

I had visited the theater several times. It is an old and classically designed venue I love the metallic gold and cream paint as well as the beautiful artwork. The seats unfortunately are pretty small and close together. It is a smaller venue but upscale! Parking is a bear because the theater itself has no parking but there are very... More

Atmosphere. That is why you go. Transported to a different gilded time. Having grown up in Chattanooga I have probably been in every portion of this theater (except for the catwalk, thankfully!!). From being in a high school revue, to viewing old movies to raise money to restore it in the late 70s, to sitting in the wings watching Neil... More

This is a beautiful theater. There isn't a bad seat in the house... If you are interested in any event, get tickets quickly, they sell out fast!!

We enjoy the architecture and feel of this old place. Yes, despite having to go down to the dungeons to use the rest rooms. This place feels really special at Christmas time with the Singing Christmas Tree and Home for Christmas. Good venue for local dance recitals and smaller shows. I have not had a bad seat.

I love going to shows here but the theater is in serious need of renovation. This theater is definetly worth a look but it really does need some work. The only reason I dont give it full marks is that.
