Theater come and go, but the CAC is a classic gem. Revitalized back to it's great splendor, this stage hall is one of the best in the region. Check the website for show listings and date because there are always many great performances to choose from.

The Community Arts Center in downtown Williamsport, Pa., is an amazingly beautiful structure, and is larger than many of the older Broadway theaters. A seating capacity of about 2,200 rivals many of its kind. Be sure to check out the beautiful ceiling too. The theater offers a wide array of programs year round, from Broadway road shows to many local... More

Organized and quick seating. Clean, open environment. The stage was very easy to view. The staff was very helpful. I lost my phone and they stayed afterwards to help me find it.

The buffet had many choices and was plentiful. The classical concert was very good, with two conductors sharing the stage. It was the highlight of our trip.

I've been in this theater many times. I've seen music concerts, and professional ballets. For the most part the seating is nice. There are no poles for obstructions. The highest seats on the second level are a bit steep. Overall it's a nice venue.

The Liberty Classic Band Festival is held here annually. The stage is ample size for a large performing group, lighting is modern and the auditorium has excellent accoustics. The balcony and hall itself are gorgeous. The organization that maintains this facility does an excellent job

We've seen probably 10 or more shows here and have never been disappointed. They staff is always helpful. They have a nice bar upstairs for a pre-show drink. There's no such thing as a bad seat and the theater itself is gorgeous. We often stay at the Genetti next door which also has a good bar for after the show.
