"My wife and I are relative newcomers to town. We came at the invite of our new neigbors to a recent concert (the BUS Band, a really great CSNY cover band) at Stargazers, and we loved it. This venue has very comfortable seats, and it has great acoustics. Your theatre is the PERFECT size: small enough to feel intimate and for patrons to easily see who the performers are on stage, and yet large enough (I certainly hope) that the tickets and concessions make enough to make it worth your while. We hope to return soon. I'm sure we will enjoy your theatre again.
"Great venue. Clean and well lit. Not a large venue, but it feels more intimate. They book great sounding bands and the volume is perfect. Not ear bleeding loud, but plenty clear and heart pounding sound. Prices are very reasonable."
"An unique venue for live performance and even if a particular show or event sells out, it remains an intimate experience. It's a great opportunity for everyone attending to feel close to their chosen performances and performers because of the theatre's unique and attractive setting. I love going to Stargazers Theatre and enjoying a live performance up close and personal. They've had wonderful people appearing there, and they never fail to provide a satisfying visit. Oh yeah, they offer food and drinks for your enjoyment, including but not limited to Mike's special drinks offerings (flavored hard ciders)."
"We saw Firefall last night, it was my first time at the theatre and it was awesome! Great sound, great performance with awesome visibility in the last row of the balcony"
"We just want to tell you how much we appreciate you bringing back the live music. We have missed live music so much and it soothes our souls to come to a show. We were at the Ana Popovic show last week and it was the best we have felt in months. So, we bought tickets for the show tonight and plan to come as often as we can. Thanks for being brave and for sticking out the hard times."
"Went to the Ana Popovic show last night and it was great -- and the venue set-up was enjoyable. Wasn't quite sure how it would be with all the changes required by COVID regulations, but you have done great to make it happen! We will support live music at your venue as much as we can! Hope that eventually you will be able to book more traveling bands, but until then we will attend regional type acts as much as possible. Keep it going!"
"I just discovered this gem. I was there to see a recital put on by Stargazers and Guitar Center but found the event had turned into a full blown performance arts show. There were dancers of all styles, bands, individual acts. It was a really good time. The owners and staff treated us like we were part of the venue and made everything comfortable and easy. Their bar is affordable and there was a wonderful smell of food wafting about. Had we not already had dinner. Next time. This place needs more publicity. Way too much awesomeness to go unnoticed."
"I grew up going to concerts of touring national acts here when it was the Colorado Music Hall, and now it's even better. The owners keep it super clean and the calendar is full of diverse, thoroughly entertaining shows from local dance bands, to film festivals, to phenomenal touring acts, to unique circus shows. Catch anything here and you won't be disappointed!"
"Excellent place to go for live music. Love the variety of performers brought in. Great place to relax & enjoy a trip down memory lane with the classics or experience something new in the music scene."
"Saw Tab Benoit for the 5th time...the show was awesome. The sound was just perfect. Sat in the "new" theater style chairs for the first time, they are very comfortable. Always a great place for experiencing a show. Thanks to John and Cindy for Stargazers!"
"The most spectacular concert theater I've ever been to in Colorado. Very up close & personal. Fancy table settings, nice seating arrangement. Awesome lighting. Really looks great on the ceiling because, it is a dome ceiling. Comfortable atmosphere & great ambiance. Hope to see another show again there, in the near future."
“Best concert venue around. It's an intimate friendly place with owners dedicated to making it a wonderful experience. I've seen some great shows there.”
“I've been to Stargazers for a few events over the years. I believe it is an important part of our cultural life, as they provide events unique to them. The sound quality of the place is great and the people who work there are nice as well.”
“Best smaller live music event center in town. it is more intimate than the large event centers. The acoustics are wonderful. The staff and owners make you feel like you are their favorite attendees!”
"What an amazing experience it has been to work with both of you, John and Cindy - for a number of events that The Independence Center has put on at Stargazers. We are a center that assists people with physical disabilities and your venue has been excellent for accommodating all of our needs. Your theater is very accessible for individuals using wheelchairs, walkers, canes, etc. The design of the theater allows everybody to participate in the festivities! The accessibility along with the sincere friendliness of your staff will keep us coming back for many future events. Finally, I don't want to forget about how delicious the food is. Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful place in our community!"
"Stargazers Theatre has been my go-to Colorado Springs venue since 2009. Not only is it an amazing venue with great sound and acoustics, but the Hooton family and the rest of the staff are always a tremendous pleasure to work with. Thanks Stargazers!"
"From the early planning stages of our event, we were met with open arms and welcoming hearts by the Hootons. On the day of our event, we had over 500 attendees and everything from beginning to end was flawless. The entire staff of Stargazers took care of our needs and the needs of our participants with a smile on their faces. Stargazers Theatre was the absolute perfect location for our fundraiser. I highly recommend Cindy and John Hooton and the Stargazers Theatre family for any of your event needs."
"Blue Star Connection just had an amazing time at Stargazers Theatre and Event Center. John and Cindy are real professionals and the Stargazers staff is friendly and competent. All the artists felt like they were in good hands. As a non-profit we give them high marks for working with us and helping our event become a huge success."
"We received numerous compliments from the staff who attended, some to include that it was a great place to have a conference; location was perfect; venue has a lot of character; simple, yet delicious food. Both days of our conference were a success thanks to you and your team!"
"The venue itself is both highly flexible and perfectly suited to our program, which includes music, exhibitions, food service, technical presentations, short speeches and awards. On top of that you and your staff?s individual support, again both highly flexible and perfectly suited, made our jobs easier than we have previously experienced at other venues. Your professionalism and expertise in everything we needed was exemplary and highly appreciated. Rest assured that we will continue to hold our annual event at Stargazers."
"Stargazers Theatre and Event Center is a spotlessly clean, historic facility and a perfect venue for hosting a turn- key event. Owners John and Cindy Hooton and their staff kept regular contact with the event committee, they provided event planning, programming and technical advice and expertise. In addition, they offered ideas and solutions to maximize the event. From the first tour until the committee left the building at the end of the Cotton Club event, Stargazers Theatre and Event Centers John and Cindy Hooton and their staff exemplified customer service. Every contact with every member of our committee was considerate, up-beat and helpful. The Colorado Springs Diversity Forum whole-heartedly recommends Stargazers Theatre and Event Center for your event!"
"Wow! What a fantastic venue. Tonight was the first time I've ever stepped foot into Stargazers and it was quite the place. Will-call was very quick, and the owners are over the top nice."
"This is the coolest venue for a concert I've ever been to in Colorado Springs. It easily beats the Pikes Peak Center."
"From comedy to music - the right show here is worth the tickets."
"Drove down from Denver to attend a Great Big Sea concert. The Stargazers is such a cute little venue with a homey feel. It is family owned and operated and they truly take pride. The acoustics in the theatre were great. The seating was comfortable and it was easy to see all areas of the stage. The best part was the affordable drinks and snacks. A Blue Moon beer was 5 dollars and even came with a fresh orange slice (I just payed $8.50 for a Miller Lite at the Fillmore the other night). The Stargazers Theatre is a great Place, I highly recommend seeing a show there!!!"
Our mission is to bring great entertainment to great audiences and to be a warm and welcoming gathering place for the community!
