Event description

Description

While it's tough to impress New Yorkers these days, one theater on Broadway has been dropping jaws (and now racking up likes on Instagram) for nearly 100 years. Step inside the largest theater on Broadway, and fourth largest in Manhattan, to see what all the Byzantine-Romanesque-Indo-Hindu-Sino-Moorish-Persian-Eclectic-Rococo-Deco architecture fuss is about.

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive look inside the landmarked United Palace theater, one of the five Loew’s “wonder theatre” movie palaces built in the New York City area between 1929-1930.

Led by a staff member of United Palace, our unique experience at one of the most impressive architectural masterpieces in all of New York will include:


  • A discussion around the history and story of United Palace, from its days as a vaudeville theatre, to its acquisition by the United Palace of Spiritual Arts in 1969, to a recent $100k donation by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda
  • A private walkthrough of the original lobby, parlors, stage, and hallways
  • A closer look inside the main 3,400 seat auditorium, which is decorated in a mix of nine different architectural styles
  • An exclusive trip to the theatre's backstage green rooms, which have hosted performers such as Eddie Vedder, Neil Young, and Adele
