Fodor's Review

In a restored downtown vaudeville house and movie palace, this gorgeous 1915 theater presents musicals and plays by touring theater companies and hosts concerts by well-known jazz, folk, and rock artists, along with the occasional stand-up comedian. In April it hosts the annual four-day Moontower Comedy and Oddity Fest, and during the summer, movie lovers escape the heat at this historic theater for the Summer Classic Film Series, featuring time-honored films from Gone

with the Wind to The Wizard of Oz.
