Temple Theatre is a National Historic site. The theatre itself is intimate, with 333 seats. There is even an old-fashioned orchestra pit, which is utilized for musicians, but can be covered to create a larger stage. As the theatre was originally designed for vaudeville, the acoustics are superb, and audience members have a good view of the stage from every seat.
