“Beautiful old theater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

It's a beautiful old cinema converted to a concert and performance hall. The seats are the old velvet-covered flip-down kind that are not as comfortable as a modern multiplex seat, but they are authentic (can't be sure if they are original, but they certainly fit the decor and overall ambience.) Huge, marble-floored foyer with wide staircases to the loge and balcony. Acoustics aren't the very best but the place is so pretty and historic it seems like the audience should be there in long gowns and coat and tails.

“The Tivoli....a beautiful piece of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

My husband worked at the Tivoli Theater as a teenager taking tickets to events. The theater's preservation has meant so much to our family. Through the years, we participated in Singing Christmas Tree concerts, and have attended other events. The prices are usually reasonable, and the atmosphere is delightful!

“Beautiful Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

On a recent trip to Chattanooga, we attended a Bryan Adams concert at this beautiful theater. It is a nice experience to attend a concert with the the sign lit up. This is a wonderful piece of history. The seats are pretty close , but that is not a major problem. We were in the upper balcony and could see without a problem. I don't know if there would be a bad seat in the house. Great experience.

“Amazing performance!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

We were fortunate to happen upon the lights outside the Tivoli Theatre being all lit up. When I saw that The performance of Menopause The Musical was about to begin we went to buy tickets right away. The Tivoli was so beautiful and the audience was so excited and happy that it was fun
right from the start. I either smiled or laughed out loud the entire performance. You can always
count on the Tivoli to have great productions and this was absolute perfection in every respect!
