Theater Renovation

Information For Patrons about Phase III Renovations

8/1/14: Throughout July, renovations continued to all areas of the Altria Theater. Sidewalks in front of the building along Laurel Street have been replaced, using a sealant to prevent rain water from seeping into the lower levels. A permanent bar/concession stand has been added to the Ballroom, in addition to much work in the Ballroom to bring the beautiful columns back to life. The new marquee framework is now in place on Main Street over the new side entrance to the Altria Theater. This brings customers and patrons directly into the lobby of the new interior Box Office--no more standing in the rain/wind/snow to purchase tickets! Along with all the restrooms from the previous phase of renovations, this will be a HUGE perk to our patrons. We can't wait to unveil it in November!

6/30/14: The final phase of renovations to Altria Theater has been moving swiftly along since the venue closed after performances of WICKED in early May. As the photos above show, crews have removed the seats from the Balcony, as well as the Grand Tier, and are working on the floors while the seats are being refurbished. We are also renovating the First Floor parlor (adjacent to the Rear Orchestra Lobby), as well as the Third Floor parlor, creating new and inviting lounges and reception rooms.

Check back for more updates. The Altria Theater will be reopening in November, looking better than ever!
