Excellent venue for live theater. Up-to-date sound and old-time elegance. Check their website to see what is playing. They have everything from music to dance to comedy and drama.

The three of us saw The Midtown Men(Jersey Boys) at the theater. We sat in the balcony section with an excellent view of the stage, great acoustics, with comfortable seats and PLENTY of leg room. Perfect evening!

The Granada was closed for several months for a remodel. I have to say that they were very quick about the remodel, which was good for the community! And the new interior is so much better! It's a pleasure to go there now!
