"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!"

"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."

"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!"

"From comedy to music - the right show here is worth the tickets."

-Rory C. Colorado Springs, CO via Yelp.


"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!!!"
