Editorial Review

What we love: The marquee out front. One of the benefits of being in an old movie theater is the giant marquee above the entrance. When you see a performer’s name spelled out in big letters, it feels like more than a concert — it feels like an event.

What we don’t: Some of the names on the marquee. It’s hard to get too excited when that name in big letters is a Journey tribute band. The venue does a good job, however, catering to rock en Espanol and jam band fans.
