We loved this old theatre. The acoustics were great - clear and spot-on. Seats were comfortable and well spaced. The charm of this place won us over as soon as we stepped in through the door. It's a must-see when you visit Burlington!

Went to the Flynn last night for the first time, had seats in the back row of the orchestra section and still felt like we were on stage. Old charm without feeling outdated. Would definitely go back!

Traveling from Philadelphia to see Brian Wilson, we didn't know what to expect at the Flynn Center. It's not much to look at from the outside, in fact it's somewhat depressing, but the inside tells another story. The Flynn has been the center of Vermont's cultural landscape for almost eighty years starting as a vaudeville house, through five decades as... More

The Flynn Theater is Vermont's own Little Broadway, with exciting stage shows from our own local theater company, to off-Broadway productions, to Cirque duSoliels and various musical artists. It's a small, intimate theater with the best performing arts VT has to offer. If you are in the area, you seriously owe it to yourself to check out their schedule on... More

The best Pink Floyd cover band I have ever seen. Close your eyes and you would truly think you're at a Pink Floyd concert. In addition, if you've seen the CD Pulse, you'd understand just how close this band is. I will see them again next year if they are back !!

World-class musical, dance, theatre, circus and family events can be found here; this beautiful venue also welcomes local community theatre twice a year, as well as our state Symphony Orchestra and Youth Orchestra--the VSO and the VYO. In addition, the intimate Flynn Space is an option for smaller shows, and the home of Vermont Stage, a local Equity Theatre troupe... More

my husband gave me tickets to the October Loreena Mckennit concert for my birthday. Burlington was absolutely brilliant in full fall foliage and the concert was one of the best I have ever been to. The Flynn was quaint, comfortable and had great acoustics. I would go again in a minute!

We saw "Transitions ..." a collaborative piece, with more than a dozen women coming together for 6 short one-acts. Inventive, some good, some less good. Well worth the $25 ticket price. The space is for about 120, so every seat is very close to the stage. Coffee and alcohol is sold inside the space. It is down a flight a... More

If you want top notch experience come here. Art Deco renovated play house. Great acoustics. They have many great performances all year. They are no bad seats in the house either.

We've been here at least 3 times. Twice to see Great Big Sea and once to See Natalie MacMaster. Seating is wonderful, sound is great and decor is beautiful! We will be heading there to see Loreena McKennitt and I'm sure it'll be amazing! People are nice there too inside and out. Burlington itself is a wonderful city!
