This theater was much larger than I expected. It had good acoustics, and the seating was comfortable. Look forward to going again.

Saw alice cooper at the Palace Theatre Oct 4th. This theatre is amazing! Beautiful inside. Except for the bathrooms being down a flight of stairs, it's beautiful. I attend many shows there. Free parking too

We went and saw a comedy special here - Gabriel Iglesias(Fluffy). It was awesome! The theater is the perfect size as you can see very well from all seats. Very reasonably priced tickets for fabulous seats - we were 4 rows back from the stage....More

I've never watched a show from the balcony but I would think the seats would be good. Personally I prefer aisle seats about half way up on the floor

Both. If you're going after regular business hours, parking is relatively easy to find. There is a garage that is less than a five minute walk away.

The box office is next door and open all day . I believe most shows open at 7 - 8 pm and there's several pubs & restaurants within walking distance plus a parking garage
