    Yes, I been there with Amy’s & Britt’s here in July 25th ,2010, strange feeling , creepy there….on up stair woman restroom .

  2. I am a member of Haunted Knights Paranormal. We did an investigation of the hotel on May 13, 2015.
    I asked where the most action is, and the manager said the Projection room, Dressin Rooms, and the Heater Room.
    Abbie Williams and Bonnie Waldron had really high readings on their EMF meters in the Projection room, and some great EVP’s on the main floor.
    Archie Cruthers and I went into the heater room, and used our cameras and EMF meters under the building. Arch’s EMF meter kept going into the red, as I began to get a bunch (10-15 ) Red Orbs coming from under the building, toward my camcorder; and then Bonnie came into the room and took a couple of pictures, and in one it looked like a devil.
    We Arch and I didn’t get much action is the restrooms, but Abbie and Bonnie got one EVP the sounded like a Growl, and the a chair was thrown against the wall by the Health Center.
    We did have some movement on the stage, and I got a whole bunch of 6 inch orbs in the maid theater, and maybe another thirty plus in the projection room. I live in town, and am planning a more exhaustive investigation.

  3. I went to the Phoenix Theater in November of 2015 to see a Misfits concert before even knowing this place was listed as haunted. I didnt see anything myself but that doesn’t mean there isnt something there right?

  4. Yess I went for the sob concert and had to use the bathroom so I went myself and I just was close and got a strange feeling like if someone was there and in the bathroom I hear a lady voice but it was strange because no one was there …

  5. Im a musical theatre performer, and we required access to the balloon drop hanging from the ceiling of the Phoenix theatre. So to use the balloon drop, we had to go on the roof. This was scary enough for me. But when I had come back up the ladder and into the dark attic, I had heard many very loud footsteps and stomps and out of nowhere a dark apparition appeared and chased we from the roof. It was scary. But that experience doesn’t scare me away from the Phoenix. I still have my birthday parties at this haunted theatre and I love it!
