This is an "old time" movie theatre which now hosts many high quality acts and movies often not seen elsewhere. It is very comfortable and clean with up to date facilities all around.

We love the Englert. It's beautiful, historical and you have such an intimate experience with anyone that is performing there.

Not only is the Englert a great venue but the whole operation is a class act. We've been members for many years and have enjoyed many concerts there. Good acoustics, friendly staff and an intimate setting for all kinds of performances.
