Live Events

The Normal Theater is a fantastic, intimate space for a live concert or performance. With a maximum seating capacity of 390, the theater is in that "just right" zone of being not too-big and not too-small.

While the Normal Theater does not share the common history of many early 20th Century cinemas that began their lives as theatre or vaudeville spaces, the acoustics of the space are perfect for live voices or instruments. A great listening room, the theater is home to many different performances, with more and more being booked all the time.

We look forward to sharing with you some fantastic live events this year!


Bloomington/Normal native Adam Larson returns to the Normal Theater! Spend your night listening to the jazz stylings of the Adam Larson Quartet. This free to attend concert starts a bit earlier than our other shows so make sure you arrive before 6:30 to get a great seat for a show that is sure to please. Doors open 6:00pm.
