We had tickets to a show that was scheduled for 7:30 with doors to open at 6:30. Doors didn’t open until 7:20 which made for less than happy people waiting in line. We had 5th row seats except there weren’t enough chairs in our row...More

The theater itself is reasonably cool and one can see pretty descent even from the back rows (we were Orchestra Right row RR) The sound carries on good although sometimes a bit loud (but that could be the problem of the Sound Engineer) Bathrooms are...More

Very nice small Theater. Good acoustics. You can get alcoholic beverages here. Bathrooms are down two flights of stairs. Parking is available, but hard to find on crowded streets. There is a parking garage kind of behind Theater that charges $20 when we were there....More

Pros- sound was good, easy to get too, staff was helpful and moved lines along fast and easily. Cons- a very "shady" location. I am not sure I would take a group girls here, but it was fine for me and my 6ft husband. The...More

Beautifully restored theater with great acoustics. Ample parking and convenient to public transportation. 69th st. Transportation center is a block away. Unfortunately, no good bars or restaurants in immediate area. Theater offers beer, wine, mixed drinks, and snacks, but expensive. Great place for a concert.

A fun night on the town to enjoy your favorite artist or band or comedian. Plenty of security and police, you’ll feel safe. Very convenient to Phila, Upper Darby, Pa, Yeadon, Pa, All surrounding townships and neighborhoods. Right in the heart of shopping and eatery’s.

For the massive amounts of people this theater has to accommodate, the staff did an excellent job. The theater brings you back to the past with the stairways, bar, balcony and lobby. It's a great place to visit and experience in person compared to pictures...More
