A great place to see a movie or to catch great entertainment from comedy to top bands to the Dog Whisperer. It has been renovated and offers comfortable seating and new restrooms.

The theatre is a restored, grand old style house and a great place to see any show. The sound was a bit funky at first, but 30 seconds later everything was fine. Not a bad seat in the place.

We saw comedian Lewis Black at Ulster Performing Arts Center last weekend. This 1,500 seat theater is a great venue for such a show! The audience can get up close and personal with the comedian. Seeing facial expressions of the performer adds to the experience....More

If you have a chance to see a performance there, do! You will love the 1926 Classical Revival interior. The acoustic is excellent as well. The space is pretty large and there are refreshment stations on the ground and upper floor.

We saw comedian Steven Wright last night. This was our first time at UPAC. There was ample free parking with two attendants to direct cars. Inside the beautiful theater, there were several volunteer ushers to help patrons find their seats. Water, soda, beer, and wine...More
