this is an old theater with marvelous interior. LIke stepping back in time. seats are a little small but it was very obviously the highest of the high in its time. Still beautiful and every seat in the house is the best.

We saw a great show--Come From Away--here. We had fabulous seats, which enhanced the experience. The theatre is small and beautifully decorated. No intermission, so don't know about the bathrooms. Acoustics were good.
