Beacon Theatre History
Beacon Theatre Design
The 2,894-seat Beacon Theatre was designed by the Chicago-based architect Walter W. Ahlschlager, who also designed the 6,000-seat Roxy Theatre in Times Square. The ornate neo-Grecian interior comprises 30 foot-tall sculptures of Greek goddess flanking the proscenium stage, which can accommodate a full scale orchestra underneath. The exterior lobby features tiled flooring that extends onto the sidewalk, and a bronze-doored vestibule leads into the opulent two-story circular interior lobby. The exquisite detailing includes polished hardwood floors, elaborate gilded moldings, brass staircase railings, and murals depicting Eastern scenes of trading caravans complete with elephants and camels.
