  • I have been here two times and each time was great. The venue is just the best. My only complaint is when the first 6 rows in front of me stood up and I could no longer see the stage. So I went to...

  • The performance was off the chain, it was very good, better than I expected from previous word of mouth description of the previous performances. The rating is for the theatre not the performance! I was an amazing gospel performance at the Golden State Theatre. It was like I said amazing, some friends an I experienced this place mostly the singing and singing along, I am not sure but until they upgrade the sound system the ratings will most likely be the same each time. The sound system - mics seemed to be very poor quality, hardly audible. Also disappointing was that there were no refreshments or water available for consumption, basically coming straight from work even for purchase, with donations going towards the fundraiser event.
  • Our first time there on 11/12/2021 to see George Thorogood. The interior of the building is beautiful! Every seat...is a good seat. Getting inside was straightforward. You can get your wristband early, show proof you are vaccinated and then go have a drink or dinner at one of hundreds of nearby fantastic places. Bathrooms are easy to find. Sound was OK but not as good as an outdoor venue. My only real complaint was they DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH STAFF keeping people in their seats. People stand up and those behind cannot see. They stand up and dance and basically make those around them mad. It did not happen to us.....but I saw A LOT of it. They need staff to ask nicely "please sit down so those around can see and enjoy the concert". The Tower Theatre in Fresno does a much better job. We did not buy drinks but they appear to have a full bar and it was busy! We enjoyed it and will be going back.
