Went to the Joe Bonamassa concert here. Top level of theatre seating with great view. Very good acoustics and good lighting. Seats were very comfortable with good leg room. Access was easy and we had plenty of parking right across the street. We will be back, which is more than I can say about most of Broadway theaters in NYC,... More

I've been to several off Broadway productions and concerts over the past few years. The seats and aisles are very tight, the interior has cracks, and the bathrooms leave a LOT to be desired (not very many and outdated). But all of that aside, I have loved every performance I have ever been to in this beautiful old venue. Would... More

There isn't a bad seat in the house. Parking is fair and not far away. Many options for food and drink area for before or after a show.

My friend and I came to see Teresa Caputo. Having some ambulation and joint issues, I arranged in advance to have handicap seating. I was not cramped into the usual theater seats. The staff was very accommodating in guiding you to the elevators and escorting you to your seats. We were very pleased and enjoyed the show.

We've been to numerous theaters in Los Angeles and London...the Altria ranks among the best of them! This was our first time at the Altria; we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The seats are very comfortable. The restrooms are clean. The theater itself is beautifully appointed. We are certainly looking forward to seeing more shows...

Went for a WWE NXT performance with my son. They were very organized with the entry and exit of the theatre and seats were comfortable.

I am a DC Native and I have lived in a lot of rural towns between moving to the Richmond area. I was very pleased at the choice of this theater. It is old American art history that makes me think about the yesteryears when aristocrats came out for the 'thee-a-tar'. I would go back to see a play here... More

Great place to catch a concert. First time was Dylan in '90, then saw Isbell there last month. Comfortable and the staff is friendly.

Great show and super venue. Sound and sight lines are excellent. We were in the balcony and it was just like we were on the floor.

Our first experience with the Altria was the broadway musical Newsies and frankly, I wished we'd have gone to New York to see it. Or hear it, to be more specific. I am very surprised at the number of reviews that speak to the quality of the sound/acoustics. I can only assume that those reviewers had the one or two... More
