[What an] amazing experience it has been to work with both of you [John and Cindy] for a number of events 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!
- Andrew McAdam, Manager of Business Services, The Independence Center


"The 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!"

Trace Bundy


“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. ” 

- Carolee Langer, Breast Cancer Awareness Ride, Colorado Springs Chapter of Women on Wheels


“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”  

- John Catt, Blue Star Connection

- Rick Thompkins ,Associate Director of Human Resources, Colorado Department of Corrections


“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.”

- Jay B. Miller, President of the Board and CEO of Pikes Peak Arts Council.


“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.”

-Tim K . Monument, CO via Yelp.

 ”This is the coolest venue for a concert I’ve ever been to in Colorado Springs. It easily beats the Pikes Peak Center.”

-Ron S. Colorado Springs, CO via Yelp.

 ”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!!! ”
