We went to see Dr. John. He was drowned out by the bass and drums - the sound man was incompetent. There are good sight lines, but the online map of the venue does not correspond to the location of the seats in the venue. Very frustrating!

I had the pleasure to attend a concert a week ago. I had gone the day before to check it out, see about parking, the drive. I was delighted by what I encountered. The theater was open when I arrived. I was able to look around and spoke with the marketing head. The place is intimate for a theater and... More

My wife and I have attended several shows here. Some are dinner theater, some are movies in this converted motion picture theater. Many well known acts have been here. I once volunteered there, helping people find their seats. High class for such a small town.

This was a great theater, easy to find and park on a Friday. Lots of staff to assist finding seats, which isn't hard since the theater isn't massive. We had front row balcony seats which are in my opinion the best in the whole place. The first floor consisted of tables for those who opted for the dinner menu, which... More

It actually pains me a little to write such a blah review for an iconic theatre, but I feel I have no choice. A small group of us have been going to the New Year's Eve party at the Admiral for a few years and though it is not the most "hip" or "action packed" place to be on New... More

We enjoyed it very much, it's an older, well kept establishment with many types of venues. Sometimes they have dinners included and they have special occasions.

This theatre at one time was a very popular movie theatre. Remodeled, it now offers all types of entertainment year round. The ticket fees are always reasonable and big names (e.g. Manhattan Transfer) as well as lesser known names are featured. And it is the only theatre I know where you can purchase a glass of wine and take it... More

My wife and I live in Kitsap County and over the years have attended many shows at the Admiral. On almost every occasion we've had a blast. It's small, intimate, has decent sound most of the time and you can grab a drink and relax. On Thursday, 10/30/14 we sat two rows from the back in the upper balcony...furthest from... More
