the Paramount is, well, certainly paramount.
there's a special vibe here for sure, much like the city that surrounds it.

Bellco, Denver --
one of the newer & shinier venues on the tour for sure!

Constructed in 2004, the Bellco Theatre was designed to be both aesthetically and acoustically pleasing. It has quickly established a reputation of not only being one of the most versatile theatres in the Denver Metro area, but also one of the most attractive. The classic look of red upholstered seats brilliantly contrasts the modern design with clean, simple lines. - See more at: http://www.denvertheatredistrict.com/co ... 7KMJc.dpuf

I can't even make heads or tales of the parking lot,
here's a reference guide to the facilities:

One of the Orpheums up on the Horizon..

Orpheum Theatre History

Image

LOOKING BACK 1921–1987
The Orpheum Theatre, originally known as the Hennepin, opened in 1921 and seats 2,579. Designed by the Milwaukee firm of Kirchoff and Rose in a Beaux Arts style, its first performers included the Marx Brothers with more than 70,000 guests attending the opening week run. Billed as the largest vaudeville house in the country when opened, it became a major outlet for such entertainers as Jack Benny, George Burns and Fanny Brice. The Orpheum featured a playroom and day care off the mezzanine lobby and backstage had eight floors of dressing rooms. As vaudeville declined in the 1930s-’40s, the Orpheum became one of Minneapolis’s major cinema houses, with Gone with the Wind in 1940 selling out every show for three weeks. It also hosted big bands including Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey and Count Basie. In 1959, Ted Mann, owner of six other downtown Minneapolis theatres including the Pantages, bought the Orpheum and brought in touring productions including My Fair Lady and Fiddler on the Roof. Movies also continued to be shown, with the 1965 James Bond film Thunderball shattering box office records. The Orpheum set a Minneapolis record for first run engagements of Best Picture Oscar winners–nine in all–including From Here to Eternity in 1953 and The Godfather in 1972.


Image


RENOVATION 1988–PRESENT

Image


In 1988, the Minneapolis Community Development Agency purchased the Orpheum from singer Bob Dylan and his brother, David Zimmerman, who owned the theatre. Restoration began in 1993 and, to accommodate elaborate Broadway productions, the Orpheum stage was extended almost 20 feet, with the back wall of the theatre painstakingly removed brick by brick. Unexpected architectural discoveries made during the renovation of the lobby included six Pompeiian friezes previously hidden under velour curtains, fake window grids and a false wall. The chandelier in the main auditorium is the theatre centerpiece. It is 15 feet high and weighs 2,000 pounds. Following a $10 million restoration, the Orpheum re-opened in December 1993 with a concert by Heart and in January 1994 with the Broadway production of Miss Saigon. Productions that have originated at the Orpheum include Victor/Victoria, the pre-Broadway world premiere of Disney’s The Lion King and the national tour premiere of Elton John and Tim Rice’s AIDA. Hennepin Theatre Trust is now the owner and operator of this magnificent structure.

The performance was really good. Good memories of the Orpheum are based on that.

We'll have to agree to disagree. I think many things contribute to a great experience, with the music being the most important, of course.

Toronto was not to be missed!
One of my favorite cities, conceptually.

Now this must be a sound structure!

Image


Image

Bob comes home to Sony. Red carpet is rolled.


Image

these crowds are getting thinner and older everyday it seems....



Image

it's always encouraging and heartwarming to see sound structures line the near-stage, upper walls instead of elevated seats.
quite a chique place!


Image

i'm guessing Bob enjoyed this view.

Very cool place. I should have gone! Toronto could have then become one of my favorite literal places.

Constitution Hall


Not many concert marquees look like this one....


Image

In 1929, the Daughters of the American Revolution dedicated this building as a memorial to the Constitution. DAR Constitution Hall is the only structure erected in tribute to the Constitution of the United States of America.

Be sure to have some pecan or cherry pie on the way to venue!

It has a capacity of around 2,100. It's a fairly intimate venue & generates a great atmosphere, the audience being mostly responsible for that.

4.11.15 Baltimore - The Lyric Opera House

Opened as the Music Hall on Halloween Night in 1895 with a performance by Dame Nellie Melba and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The theatre was designed after the Gewandhaus in Leipzig. It was not designed for motion pictures but did fill in with them during slow times, especially during the early part of the 20th Century.

The name was changed to the Lyric Theatre in October 1903, and it reverted back to Music Hall some time later. It became the home of the Baltimore Opera Company and they went out of business in 2009. The theatre was taken over by a new group with launched in 2009, Lyric Opera Baltimore, which continues to do well. The building is now the Model Performing Arts Center at the Lyric Theatre.

The theatre was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.

Cool venue. Perhaps one of the contributing inspirations for Red Rocks.
