Time Out says

Judy Garland once graced the stage of this landmark, which opened in 1926. Nowadays, it prefers more rock and pop acts such as Ben Harper, Joe Jackson and Neutral Milk Hotel, alongside the occasional comic and film screening. The sound, especially from under the balcony on the main floor, is fine, and the space is wonderfully grand. Unfortunately, the seats have to be the most knee-crunchingly close-set in town, and parking can be a chore (though if you park in the adjacent lot, Two Boots pizza is on your way back to the car).

What’s on


  • Rock and indie

When Pavement last performed together in 2010, the consensus among concertgoers seemed to be that the decade-since-breakup indie band sounded a bit sloppy. But… those people had actually listened to a Pavement record before, right? Now, another decade has passed and Stephen Malkmus, Mark Ibold, Scott “Spiral Stairs” Kannberg, Bob Nastanovich and Steve West are coming together once again for a tour of scrappy, genre-defining earworms.
