They have a professional series that features musical acts (folk, bluegrass, big band, etc. acts) plus a number of local activities. The place is attractive inside and you have a good view of the stage because... More

I had heard about the Princess Theatre for years before I ever had the opportunity to go to an event there. It is so neat. It will take you back to the days when theatre's were bright, shiney, fun, and magical. This is a great place to have high school senior portraits taken too.

Restored, classic movie theatre in the retro-Egyptian style. Worth a visit no matter what's going on, and if the performance is great, a real treat!
