It's a small community theater, but very quaint and I liked it. There's a bar area, a gift shop, and in the opened lobby area were beautiful canvas paintings for sale. We went here to see The Great Gatsby, it was a cute production (definitely not Broadway though). The gift shop manager was especially nice to my daughter, he gave her a free event poster. The tickets were also very affordable too for the seats that we had, which were great seats. There is plenty of street parking available too, if you don't mind walking a block or two to the side streets.
The 1800s all over again! I love it! The place is so romantic! Full of romance! I highly recommend it! Don't forget to click LIKE on this review!
