Reviews for Crest Theatre - Sacramento

Nothing less than spectacular, the antique Crest Theatre gives modern movie and music venues a run for their money. – Overview
The Crest's main theater seats 1,000 and has hosted performances by artists ranging from locally grown Cake to Nirvana, Ray Davies and Train. Refurbished to its former glory, the Crest drips with vintage style. A beautiful gilded ceiling pattern gives an air of elegance to whatever the Crest presents--be it the annual Sammies music awards, one of promoter Jerry Perry's charity music showcases or the latest underground films on three screens.

The Appeal
Grab popcorn or candy at the snack bar and view theater artifacts and memorabilia encased downstairs. This theater gives Sacramento a sense of big-city confidence and charm. No flashy Hollywood blockbusters here. The Crest screens obscure, independent, art-house films, and film festivals like ''Spike & Mike's Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation,'' which has drawn quite a following in Sacramento. Classics like "Sunset Boulevard" and "The Graduate" are also popular.

* – The Crest is a beautiful theater to see a movie but a terrible place to see live music. It's a theater, with permenant seats mounted to the floor. The area in front of the stage is tiny and doesn't allow room for dancing or rock'n, so everyone ends up sitting down as if they're watching TV or ...a movie. Sacramento, please stop having muisc shows at the Crest unless it's something you don't mind falling asleep to.

An excellent theater – A fine theater indeed. The larger screening room is better but it's a wonderful place that shows a variety of films.
