Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center
The Belk Theater is the largest venue in the North Carolina Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, seating 2,100 at its full-capacity configuration.
Very spacious and acoustic-friendly theater. Tiered seating allows for good viewing, no matter where you sit. Great leg room and the seats are comfortable. Bathrooms located on the first level or ground floor. Beverage and snack prices are typical for Charlotte venues. It is nice that you can take your beverages inside the theater.
I always love coming to see shows here, but this one stands out. I have anxiety and was coming alone for the first time. I left to sit in the hallway about halfway through because I started having a panic attack. The most wonderful employee, Jenn, came straight over to see if I was okay, helped me breathe, got me some water, and led me to an area downstairs I could watch without feeling claustrophobic. Jenn truly went above and beyond to not only make sure I was okay, but that I still got to enjoy the show. Thank you, Jenn!
Went to watch our oldest grand daughters very first dance performance ! The theater is beautiful and very clean. The seats were comfortable , with a nice selection at the concessions , and the bathrooms were also extremely clean.
I mean, it's the Blumenthal. I've seen Jesus Christ Superstar and Hamilton here. I had a wonderful time on both occasions. That being said, I didn't have to pay for my tickets in either case, and I didn't buy any concessions. So I can't speak for prices, which I know are extremely high. So there's that.
The ushers help theatre-goers navigate the women's restrooms very well during a 15 minute intermission. The theatre itself is charming and beautiful. Balcony seats are a bit tight. Professional lighting and sound make it very easy to see and hear the performance. Concession prices are not too astronomical. Ushers do a fantastic job of taking pictures by the performance screen in the Lobby, and are excellent at moving the line forward.
