Wonderful venue with quality entertainment so close to home. I saw concerts, comedians, magicians, Christmas shows....always happy with the time spent there. Calendar is always packed with events. It is a nice intimate setting for all events. Parking is never an issue.

Just saw Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo and the acoustics were great. It's a relatively small venue so you can see and hear the artists easily. The only drawback was the somewhat chaotic and inadequate parking.

Love the small size of the theatre room. It's humbling being in there with such an inspirational man such as Sully Erna. Best meet & greet ever! :)
