Love this place. So much character. All the seats are great, but the seats in the middle no matter how far back would be best. Was there for a concert. Was very impressed with the venue. No outside drinks are allowed in the theater. So impressed!

My mom and I went here for Yanni's concert. This theater is near Metro Center and was not hard to find. The interior of the theater is gorgeous. It's clean and the employees are very accommodating. Yanni's concert ran from 8pm-10:pm and there were no breaks. I was concerned that when I step out to go to the ladies room,... More

This is a great theater to see a show, there really is no bad seat in the house and the seats are comfy as well! It has old school charm which makes it a great place to visit.

I remember going her in the 60's and it looked the same then. A true treasure in Erie's history. Something special just seen one like it in Kingport, Tn

There is not a bad seat in this theater. This place is old, but very classy. I will go to this place again.

In many major North American cities, old style movie palaces no longer exist, having given way to multiplex cinemas, which themselves are giving way to movies on demand. I am grateful to whoever decided to save this 1931 gem from the wrecking ball. Used principally as a concert venue, the Warner has been lovingly preserved as a symbol of an... More

When in Erie, take in a show at this restored 1930's theater. Upon entering the doors you can see why these theaters were considered "palaces", the art-deco interior will enchant your eyes, and the beauty of the lines of construction will lead you into the balcony, via a beautiful staircase, and into the theater itself. The stage plays host to... More

The Warner offers a wonderful venue for many different types of events. Beautiful architecture and ambience. The Grand entrance is spectacular and the theater is just right for almost any entertainment event. We have seen comedians, concerts, and Broadway shows here. Easy to purchase tickets online or by phone. Cash only bars/snacks. The view from any seat is good.
