United Palace: Historical Tour

Date: Sunday, June 12 | Time: 2–3:30pm | $15 per person

Directions: Meet in the Grand Foyer at 1:45pm

Get up close and personal with the United Palace 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 hosts concerts, movies, and community events and provides spiritual and cultural programming.

Tours are capped at 30 people. Proceeds go toward maintaining the building.

About half of the tour is accessible without any physical barriers. Part of the tour requires climbing a flight of stairs.

Learn more about the United Palace here.

***Tour schedule is subject to change. Tours may be modified depending on events within the theater.
