The Englert is a phenomenal venue for viewing the performing arts in Iowa City. Granted, Hancher Auditorium is outstanding and yet, there's something about seeing a live performance in the venerable old theater. If you have the chance to attend, please do. You won't be disappointed.
Theater was a nice facility, but they were stringent on masking. So much so that if you took a drink of your beverage of choice and didn't immediately replace your mask they had security hassle you. You had to show prof of vacation in order to get into the concert. If you are not going to allow people to take a drink of their beverage without publicly hassling them then don't serve beverages. I won't go back as even though I masked the entire time the constant mask police kind of ruined the experience. Unfortunate because the concert was very good.
Always Loved The Englert, Theater. I worked there as a kid, cleaning when it was a Movie Theater. I'm glad they kept it. It's a landmark for sure. And they have some pretty incredible acts come through.
Great restored Vaudeville era theater that hosts contemporary artists and serves wine and beer.
Seeing the lights of the theature at night is phenomenal. The staff were also super friendly.
