We were so excited to take our grandchildren to Shrek.... the theater was HOT, everyone was fanning and it was miserable. Everyone in the theater was fanning. At intermission they gave away water....not cold! Wish I had my $200 back.More

This venue, dating from mid 1940s, was designed by the architect of our splendid Majestic Theater. Woodlawn's design is quaint, as other have said. The smaller seating area puts audiences close to the stage and makes it possible for performers to co-opt aisles and the...More

We are regulars at this theater and...while I like the intimate size, the decor and paint job really needs to be addressed. The shows are always great and the attendants are extremely helpful. While the ambiance is not great, everyone seems happy to be there!

The Woodlawn Theater has a smaller more intimate theater called the Classes Theater. It seats the guests on opposite sides of the stage area. It only seats about one hundred guests. We recently saw a performance of "Born Yesterday." The acting performances were superb. The...More

The movies are gone now, but there's still magic in the air. Broadway shows are now playing at this theater.
