I don't know how many people visit The Nevada Theatre from out of town, but coming from a local of Nevada City, this theater is very special. Every year, several community theater productions take place and they are always fabulous! All the seats are nice and comfortable with good viewing and there are two levels; the ground floor and the balcony. Besides the live theater venue, there are film sessions. Two major ones are: The Wild and Scenic Film Festival and The Nevada City Film Festival. The theater is accessible to all ages, although some events may not be reccommended for children. It's a place full of life, great location downtown, and always a fun experience!

Love, love, love local theater. Husband and I have spent many enjoyable evenings watching local theater productions which were way above what we expected. Nevada City is teeming with talented artists of all persuasions. We recently saw the movie Kon Tiki as well. Beverages, popcorn and candy available or bring your own. Seats are old fashion but it is all part of the ambiance of yesteryear. Go, you will enjoy the experience.

There is something about local theater that warms the heart. Sierra Stages' production of Midsummer Night's Dream is professional, entertaining...amazing. The Nevada Theater is a intimate and perfect setting. There is not a bad seat in the house! Beverages are available for sale and allowed in the theater. I highly recommend!

Love this place. Old world charm and the performances are always good are great! Don't miss this place and Off Broadway if you are in the area. Have a nice dinner in town and see a show afterwards.
