This 6,200-seat temple to the performing arts was originally intended to be a variety playhouse, but when ticket-buyers didn’t respond, it was quickly transformed into a movie theater with stage shows. Because of its reputation for family entertainment, the decline in the quality of films that could be shown here resulted in an announcement in 1978 that the Rockettes had kicked up their heels for the last time and the theater would be torn down. It was saved in the nick of time by the state’s Urban Development Corporation, has undergone extensive renovation, and although movies with stage shows are a thing of the past, it still presents traditional Easter and Christmas shows, live rock concerts, and similar events.
