Hands down, my favorite place in Sacramento to see a show is the Crest Theatre. I like the fact it's a mile or so from my house, too, and parking is located nearby in a garage. It's very convenient. The theatre itself is gorgeous, originally constructed in 1912 and renovated. It has a glamorous 1940's feel to it. Ornate.
A major factor is its size. You can see a show up-close and personal, and if you're fast enough ordering tickets online, you can even score front row seats. Not having to rush the stage and stand on top of the chairs is a nice feeling when you are in your mid 60's and recalling shows from the '60s.
