Tower Theatre for the Performing Arts
The first striking detail of the Tower Theatre for the Performing Arts is the tower itself. Eighty feet tall, drenched in neon tubes, and topped with a multicolored globe, it acts as a lighthouse that guides travelers to the shores of entertainment. At night, it beams like the New York World's Fair of 1939, the same year the Tower Theatre opened as a movie house for 20th Century Fox. The next eye-catching feature of the art-deco masterpiece is its sleek, bright, and cantilevered marquee, which contains a hidden tractor beam that draws people to the box office.
The Tower Theatre’s gorgeous interior further validates its placement in the National Register of Historic Places. A Carvart glass etching guards the lobby as guests gawk at the foyer's Italian terrazzo leaves before entering the lofty yet intimate auditorium, which seats up to 750 patrons. Restored as a performing-arts center in 1990 without losing a hint of its original charm, the historic venue keeps Tower District denizens enthralled with a packed calendar of music concerts, movies, comedians, and theatrical performances.
