About The Madison Theater
35 cents. That's what the Madison Theater charged guests for admission to its grand opening on May 30, 1929—and what an opening it was. That evening's ceremonies featured The Star-Spangled Banner sung by Frances Alda; a performance by Warner Bros' Vitaphone Trumpeteers; and the theatre's first movie showing, The Desert Song.
Nearly a century later, The Madison Theater continues to exude historic elegance even as it's transitioned to a more multipurpose community-arts center. Some things haven't changed—guests can still see a movie for 35 cents on Family Flick nights—but by and large, the theater has embraced the versatile interests of 20th century while staying true to its history. Here are few facts behind The Madison's success:
- Original design: Renowned architect Thomas W. Lamb designed the theatre's original layout as a single-screen neighborhood theater large enough to seat 1,400 people.
- Restorations: Of course, that original design needed some fix-ups eventually. In 1994, The Madison became a multiplex, and in 2013, it underwent a $500,000 restoration that included upgraded concession areas, a repainted interior, and a restored marquee that maintains its retro charm by refusing to label movies with emoji.
- The Madison today: In October 2014, the theatre combined two of its smaller theaters into one large performance venue for special events, including jazz and rock concerts, lectures, and standup. Moving pictures, of course, are still the focus in the other three theaters, which screen everything from new releases to classic films, cult favorites, and curated series.
