I only found out about this place while searching for a band we like to hear, the Slambovians. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were playing so close to home at this theater that I had never heard of. We called and bought tickets sitting in Right Booth 5 and the seats were great. We were a group of 4 so we were not sitting with strangers. The booth was like sitting on a couch with a small table in front of you for your food or drink. If you are a party of two you will be sitting with 2 people your don't know if the seats are sold. This may bother some people? I like this place and I will return when they have another event that interests me. The size of the theater is not that big so most seats should be fine. If your at a table you will need to turn your chair so your facing the stage. Not sure about he balcony. We did not eat that night so we can not comment on the food. It was a cold night and they did not have hot chocolate. It will be a great convenience when the local restaurant opens. We parked on the Main Street and walked 3 minutes to the front door-no problem

Most musical events in the Princeton area are very middlebrow. This show was a real original. Muldoon is the best poet of our generation and Rogue Oliphant's music meshed with it beautifully.

Great variety of programing. We've been to movies with that family and to musicians, just the two of us. Intimate environment. Wonderful staff. If you need something to do without leaving the area, look them up. You won't regret it.

The venue was a real treat. Super clean. Super intimate. Whole staff is super friendly and is basically an over sized coffee house with luxury seating and over stuffed leather lounging in all areas. No bad seat in the house! Entire venue maybe holds 200 people or less. Not obscured or impeded views. Sounds quality is excellent for a small venue. Even the best part is that they have a pop corn making machine which makes everything smell great and the concert hall is BYOB! Very affordable and a great place to check out a show. Don’t know what other kind of events they hold. Liquor store on the block as well as a fun bar in walking distance. I’d def recommend an excuse to have an evening out there!

My wife and I regularly attend the wide variety of fine programming available at this venue. This is a recently renovated multi-use theater with alternative movies, live music, and dramatic and comedy performances. It has great sound, lighting, and projection with comfortable seating.and friendly, helpful staff. Some of our recent experiences include great concerts by Sonny Landreth and Cindy Cashdollar, Stuart Duncan and Noam Pikelny, and Sierra Hull, Remembrance Day a fine one woman show about a character who worked with the Bletchley code breakers, and The Report a new movie with Adam Driver and Annette Bening about the struggle to produce the “torture report” last decade.
