“Brings you back in time”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

I love this opera house. I feel like I'm back in my childhood whenever I go there. The decor is beautiful. They also have comfortable seats and great acoustics, plus a variety of great shows

“Beautiful little theater”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

My husband and I took his parents here to see the guys from Jersey Boys. It was a music production, not the play.
They really enjoyed the guys and the music, I really enjoyed the Opera house. It was a nostalgic time for me, as I use to go to the movies there during the era it was a movie theater.
Its been restored quite beautifully.
The seats are tight for sure, but there aren't many bad seats.

“great music venue”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

Enjoyed two musical events here in one week, sat in two different sections, had great views and could hear the music well. Some seats are a little tight though and I felt cramped in the balcony seating, although I'm small framed and 5'3"!! They do offer wine, beer and snacks and you can buy a sippy cup to take your drinks into the theater. The theater itself is very beautiful. Would go back on our next visit to Galveston.

“Great historical feeling!”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Great venue, but very close seating. Not much leg room. Upper balcony seats had good views. If you sit on the upper balcony, be prepared for a lot of stairs to get up there.
