Turner Hall Ballroom

Nestled within the brick edifice of its eponymous hall, the Ballroom was a popular meeting place for the city’s Teutonic community through the 1930s, regularly holding dances, competitions, and concerts. But then, a pair of fires damaged the space, prompting the Ballroom to shutter its doors for more than seven decades. Now fully restored to its former glory, the open space boasts a capacious balcony that sweeps around the rear of the room, allowing elevated views of the concerts and giving infants a brief chance to feel taller than other people for a change.

Riverside Theater

As vaudeville heaved its last breaths in the late 1920s, RKO’s Riverside Theater opened in 1928 and served as a performance hall for just a few years before Warner Brothers took it over to screen their films. Decades of neglect followed, reaching a nadir in 1966 when a carelessly tossed cigarette butt incinerated the proscenium’s drapery, prompting the cash-conscious owners to replace the opulent teal velour with workmanlike duvetyn. A slated demolition in 1982 nearly replaced the theater with a shopping mall before a coalition of citizens convinced philanthropist Joseph Zilber to save the space. In the subsequent renovations, craftsmen installed plush red drapery, overhauled the obsolete lighting, and repainted the faded French Baroque gilding of the auditorium, restoring the elegant space to its former glory and inspiring it to get back out on the theater dating scene.
