The AC is broken and they are not fixing it. Ruins the experience. Theater has a lot of potential but they need to make the audience comfortable. Avoid until they can confirm the A/C is fixed.

“Always a good time there”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

I grew up in this city and knew this place as the Tivoli Theater. The building dates back to 1929 and is now home to many different entertainment events. Most recently my husband and I went to see a Beatles Tribute band called 1964: The Tribute. Fabulous Fun! ( senior tix $30. 50 each) The place was packed. The inside of this historic theater is nicely done. The walls are attractively done and the old chandeliers give it charm. I do not think there is a bad seat in the house including the balcony. We were in Row O on the far right and had a great view. You will see music here, as well as silent movies accompanied but the "Mighty Wurllizer" organ. Speaker series that feature notable journalists, political pundants.. you can also see locals too like dance recitals and the annaul Handel's Messiah sing along each Christmas.

“Wonderful Venue”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I've been here several times on field trips over the years. My husband and I went to see a comedy show there one night. Weinberg Center hosts a wide variety of entertainment from concerts to old films.

The theater itself has been lovingly restored and takes me back to the day when going to the movies was a big event with one huge screen and a stage. I love this place.

“Great Venue”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We hadn't been to the Weinberg Center in years and just recently attended a concert there. It's great to see it's still as beautiful as ever and the sound is just perfect too!
I remember as a kid going to the movies there with my grandmother, it's a Frederick Tradition that shouldn't be missed out on.

“Jewel of Frederick Entertainment”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Recently saw The Piano Guys at the Weinberg Center and it was one of the most spectacular performances that I have ever seen. The programing has really been great the last few seasons and offers a wide variety of entertaining options. The atmosphere, decor, and staff makes a night at the Weinberg Center an upscale event. Dinner downtown + a performance is a great night out!
