The design of the theatre was amazing. We were expecting a professional showcase but it was more of a high school play. All except for Quasimodo.

I walked by this place so many times and I never realized what was ‘hiding’ inside. An amazing interior of the building in Art Deco style, perfect place for shows and events.

While there is no general dress code for the Olympia Theater, you should dress for the event you plan to attend. Keep in mind the theater can get chilly so a jacket/sweater or wrap would be a good idea.
