Designed by celebrated architect Thomas Lamb in 1926 and listed in The National Register of Historic Places, the theatre is located approximately 30 miles from NYC, conveniently accessible by I-95 and only one block from the Port Chester Metro North train station.

In its distinguished history, the 1,835-capacity theatre has hosted concerts by the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Derek and the Dominos, Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead, David Bowie, Santana, Black Sabbath, Iggy Pop, and many more. Beneath a 65-foot domed ceiling, the concert hall features a general admission floor, a seated balcony including VIP seats, and six presidential box suites.

The theatre is currently undergoing a transformative renovation from the ground up. The in-house production will feature a d&b audiotechnik V-Series line array sound system (the first install of its kind in the country); a full house projection system featuring ten HD cinema-quality projectors; content created by Mark Brickman (Pink Floyd, Roger Waters' 'The Wall' Tour) and the NYC-based team of Batwin and Robin; and an arena sized lighting rig designed and installed by Chris Ragan and BML/Blackbird. "It all starts with the lineup," says Shapiro. "Combining this eclectic group of incredible musicians, this historic and influential theatre, and the most state-of-the-art sound, lighting, and visual projection technologies in the world should create a pretty amazing experience."
