This performance was so great, these comedians made good use of their wit and years of Hollywood experience to connect wit the audience and we laughed so hard our stomachs were sore by the end of our two hour show. If only the theatre was more comfortable this would have been an ideal show. As it was, you are seated... More

If you are 5' 10" or taller forget it! Literally not enough space for your legs. If you plan to see a show at this theater then you need to either sit in a front row or on the aisle.

I visited this theater for the first time to attend Chris Rock's Blackout Tour on a Sunday night in March 2017. We had second row seats, so the audio and visual were great! The staff was extremely nice and helpful in escorting everyone to their appropriate seating.

This is a beautiful historical theater but if you are going to see a show do not get the second tier. Pay more and be in the orchestra section. The acoustics were not as good.

Good venue for such a program. The multi media and mics were good. I just did not care for this woman or her ideas for how Americans should hand in their guns like she had done in Australia. She was far to liberal for my tastes. I did enjoy the evening though. One big flop was everyone got a small... More

The Altria Theater, formerly the Landmark Theater, and, for those of us of a certain age, formerly the Mosque, is a gorgeous building, inside and out. Recent renovations make it even more enjoyable to visit and take in a Broadway production. Acoustics still not terrific, but better than in years gone by. Enjoy the show!

Went see Cinderella yesterday as a couple. The play was fantastic! However the theater presents some challenges especially if someone in your party is tall or large and in charge! The seats in the balcony levels are small and very tight. It was our first trip to that theater so we had no idea what to expect. Pretty theater but... More

Saw Lion King here. After reading reviews of not much leg room, I purchased Orchestra Seats in Row K, seats 208 and 9. there was plenty of leg room for my 6'4'' son. Seats were comfortable. We could see perfectly, not too close, not too far back. Theatre was beautiful. Parked in the garage directly across the street, purchased parking... More

Sound quality excellent. Have been here for several Richmond Symphony Concerts. And plays. Even Operas. Reminds me of Pretty Women even though we have never gotten boxed seats.
