I recently attended a play at this beautiful theater (Shrek-the Musical). Although the show was sold out, each seat was comfortable and there wasn't a bad seat in the house. The theater was able to get everyone seated and the show started on time. This is a must see if you are in the SW Georgia area.

If you like history and reviving old structures, this is one to be admired. The only thing that is not good is the sound. There are no mikes or amps. You can hear from the stage when music is being played, but plays are hard to hear. I still love going.

I recently attended a production by the Swamp Gravy Players entitled "Women of the Bible - Through Their Eyes". The theater is beautiful, and the acoustics are very good for such an old venue. The ladies were wearing microphones, and every word they spoke or sang was easily heard and understood. It was a very enjoyable evening.

Wow - amazing theatre - refurbished. Old plush carpet and curtains. Happened upon theatre while walking around town during a stop on the SAM Shortline Excursion Train tour. A nice place to see what the "theatre" was like in its hay day.

We happened upon Americus while searching for lodging before visiting nearby Andersonville NHM. We were directed to a beautiful restored hotel and from here learned of the City having it's first "First Friday" art and community exhibit. We were referred to the Rylander Hotel and received a personal tour by the manager of the property. This beautiful old theater is... More

We stopped here during our visit to Americus. There was some type of recital that evening but they let us self tour. Such a gem, not much goes on here, you would think it would have shows/movies/ events at least monthly.

The Rylander Theatre is a historical stop when in southwest Georgia. There is a lot of history at the theatre.

It only took a few minutes to see the theatre, however, you can get a tour if you like. It was nice to see a grand theatre of old. So much more character than theatres today.

This theatre, restored around 2001, is a little jewel. It's quite beautiful. We were attending a Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation meeting and had the treat of hearing the organist play the theatre's organ. It rises from the floor just like at the Fox!
