Get up close and personal where you’ll explore this stunning 3,400-seat theater, its mezzanine, grand foyer, balcony, exterior, and if you’re lucky, you’ll get to go up on stage!The history of United Palace, Manhattan’s 4th largest theatre and now a landmarked building, began in 1930, when it was then one of five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres” across the boroughs and New Jersey. Designed by noted architect Thomas Lamb (Cort Theatre, the former Ziegfeld Theatre) with interiors overseen by decorative specialist Harold Rambusch (Waldorf Astoria, Radio City Music Hall), it was one of the region’s premier vaudeville and movie houses. Today, the United Palace is a transformational venue that fuses culture, spirituality and entertainment.
Tours are capped at 30 people and each visitor will receive a free pin that celebrates Lin-Manuel Miranda’s contributions to Movies at the Palace. Proceeds go toward maintaining the building and its programs.
