Count Basie Theatre
Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details immediately grab the eyes of visitors, evoking the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling guests toward the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a chandelier. These features have helped the Count Basie earn numerous accolades since it opened in 1926, including a nod from Pollstarmagazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
