Every production we've seen in this theater has been a joy. From Guys And Dolls to comedienne Paula Poundstone, to replays of old classic movies. The sound system is good, the vintage decor amazing. It's a gem in the heart of downtown Bozeman.More

We were wowed by Ellen Theater's production of Once Upon a Mattress. The pit orchestra was fully scored and well rehearsed. The singing, acting and dancing was excellent. An overall professional performance.

We did not have much time, I wish we had time to visit. The exterior was so charming with a small town charm! Lovely!

Saw a great concert here . The acoustics were great. I have been to this venue several times and it has yet to disappoint me. Plays, concerts or movies....it is always a great time. Can't recommend the Ellen more.

Charming old theater right on Main Street. We saw a full production of Oliver! Wonderful music, charming production. Wonderful house for entertainment. Good sight lines. If you have a mental image of an 1800's theater, you will see it at the Ellen

Good morning, Thank you for your inquiry. Apologies for the delayed response. To answer your question, seating in the theatre is very subjective. Some patrons prefer the sides over the center, so they can look up the aisle... More
