Overview

A national and state historic landmark, this performing arts center was originally opened in 1928 as an elegant and lavishly designed Loews movie palace and has since been restored to its former splendor. Performances run the gamut from opera, symphony and concerts to comedy, song, children's entertainment and family shows.

Beautiful venue for all performing arts. All performances from the Symphony, Operas, Ballets sound rich and clear. As a musician who has recently performed at Center Stage, I can attest to the perfect acoustics. The sound and music projects from the stage very evenly throughout...More

This lovely venue in downtown Richmond is a wonderful place for opera lovers; the adjacent Gottwald Theater is an intimate space for my favorite theatrical group, Quill Theater. Nice restaurants within walking distance, parking lot available.

The renovated art deco movie theatre provides the best place to view ballets, musicians, comedians. Not only is the decor very interesting but the acoustics are great.

The theater itself is deceptively small. Or maybe deceptively large. It seems like there would be more bad seats, but it seems like most seats in the house have a pretty good view. I like the acoustics as well. There's some cool decorations above and...More
