The Providence Performing Arts Center is a multi-purpose venue in Providence, Rhode Island that hosts a wide range of entertainment events throughout the year. The venue is among one of the oldest and most prized cultural tomes in 20th century America that still survives. With a history spanning more than eight decades, the Providence Performing Arts Center is still known among many people all over the United States. It is loved by performers and audiences alike, the latter of whom eagerly attend the theatre’s events each year. As a result, Providence Performing Arts Center tickets are always in high demand.
The venue was established in 1928 and was originally a movie theater owned by entrepreneur Marcus Loew. Called “Loew’s Movie Palace,” the theater designed by the renowned architects C.W. and George Rapp. The finished venue cost more than two million dollars and was equipped with a Robert Morton organ, which was used mainly for silent films. Visitors to the venue were greeted with lush, opulent art deco interiors that had columns made with some of the finest imported marble as well as walls adorned with intricate plasterwork with breathtaking gilding. The crowning jewels in the venue’s decoration, however, were its several large crystal chandeliers. The theater was an instant success upon its inauguration and was visited by more than fourteen thousand people on its first day of business alone.
Loew’s Movie Palace continued to be a success over the next few decades. However, by the middle of the 20th century, the theater’s popularity began to decline, thanks in no small part to the increasing prevalence of television. Apart from its mounting business difficulties, the venue also fell into disrepair after two major hurricanes. As a result, the establishment was considered for demolition but was eventually chosen for renovation and was remodeled as the Providence Performing Arts Center.
Since then, the venue has been considerably modernized, with state-of-the-art sound and lighting facilities, as well as a considerably expanded stage and improved seating. Over the years, the Grand Lobby and Arcade have also been completely restored to how they were back when the venue was opened. The biggest change, however, is the fact that the venue is no longer exclusively a movie theater. It now hosts a vast variety of live entertainment, such as the finest touring Broadway shows, concerts, films and many other events. Artists who have performed shows at the Providence Performing Arts Center include John Mayer, Yanni, David Sedaris, Chris Botti, Il Divo, Bon Iver, Munford & Sons and countless others.
The Providence Performing Arts Center is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places, making it one of the most historically and culturally significant venues in America. It has also cemented its place in the hearts of many theatergoers and is a favorite among performers as well. The venue continues to put on exciting events and Providence Performing Arts Center tickets for the venue’s upcoming events are now widely available.
