If you have not experienced a Broadway show at Proctor's Theater, you are really, really missing out! We have just seen 2 phenomenal shows the last couple of months, An American In Paris and Dirty Dancing. The sets were amazing as well as the cast, the costumes, and the orchestra. Both shows were excellent. And you see all of this... More

I'm not a big fan of plays or musicals. On this last occasion we enjoyed An American In Paris set in post WW-II, timewise. The production was amazingly great in terms of staging, characters, music, songs and the like. Our visit was one of the last shows before the company moved on to London. It seems they used the US...

Proctor's has become the "community center" for Schenectady. In fact, Proctor's has contributed significantly to the revitalization of Schenectady. How? Restaurants depend on the theater customers. That is, the theater brings popular plays from NYC (and other places) as well as great artists to our city. Many restaurants remain open extra hours after Proctor's events. In fact, there are Proctor's... More

Proctor's Theatre is an old Vaudeville Theatre that's been beautifully renovated and is home to Broadway shows, special events and movies. The building itself also houses a weekly Sunday Greenmarket (inside during Fall and Winter months) as well as a cafe where you can buy something to eat or drink and comfortably sit to chat with friends and family. The... More

My wife and I... sometimes with friends... sometimes with our adult children... we have watched many shows here. The theater itself is stunning and takes you back in time. We always enjoy grabbing a bite at any of the many eateries before a show, and even walking around the town afterwards. Been there many times and the last show was... More

We have been to Proctor's many times and absolutely love it. It is a beautiful old theater in downtown Schenectady and has a wonderful feel to it. The shows are great and the staff is always helpful and polite to everyone. Parking, free, is convenient in a parking garage just a two minute walk from the theater. It has quality... More

Theater staff and volunteers are exceptionally nice and helpful. Performances are always high quality and reasonably priced. The theater is clean and seats are comfortable. There is a history museum room -- lots of history in this well maintained theater. Neighborhood is safe and well-lighted. Great eateries conveniently located near the venue.

Went there to watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The live actors that performed along with the movie were fun to watch. The VIP seating t appeared to be less comfortable then the regular seats though. The interior of the theatre was very nice.

Love going to see shows at Proctor's. We have a family tradition to see the Christmas shows each year. We also see Melodies of Christmas each year. Love the beauty of the building.
