Saenger Theatre Ranks #4 Nationwide

The SMG-Managed Saenger Theatre was listed as a #4 Top Spot Nationwide by Venues Today, an international trade magazine.  The ranking was based on concert and event grosses for venues with a 2,000 or fewer capacity for the period of December 16, 2012 through January 15, 2013.

“This is a great honor to be recognized in the top four among other buildings in markets like San Francisco, Chicago and Los Angeles with populations more than ten times that of Pensacola metropolitan area,” said Doug Lee, General Manager of the Saenger Theatre.

Shows that appeared at the Saenger Theatre during the period were:  Ballet Pensacola’s Nutcracker; Saenger Theatre Classic Movie  – It’s A Wonderful Life; Pensacola Symphony’s Celebrate The New Year concert; Broadway in Pensacola’s West Side Story; B.B. King in concert; and the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra’s Beethoven In Blue Jeans concert.
