We saw 70s/80s country music/broadway star Gary Morris at this renovated movie theater. It was a great venue for a man, his guitars and his amazing vocal range. There are no bad seats in the house and those seats are comfortable. There is a bar,...More

Excellent place to get away for an evening -- right here in Shelby! Their ability to bring popular artists only cements what an exceptional venue this is.

Have been to several country music concerts at this theatre from out of state. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Wish we had a place like this in my hometown. If you get the opportunity to go it is well worth it.

Lovely atmosphere, as if stepping back in time at an old movie theater from the 50's. There is a large ballroom-type area for any private event, including a full-size bar.

We had several breakout sessions in the theater and I was impressed by the architecture and the acoustics in the theater. It's an art deco building that has been remarkably refurbished. A credit to any meeting and to the town of Shelby.
