About the Venue

The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre was built in 1910 as The Globe, named after Shakespeare’s original theater. Until 1932, when the theater was converted into a movie house, the venue featured a retractable roof to cool the patrons during summer months .

In 1958, the theater was named after husband/wife actors Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, who performed in the newly renovated theater's first production, The Visit.


There is one bar located on the mezzanine level and one bar in the lower lounge where various mixed drinks, sodas, and candy can be purchased. However, water and the souvenir drink cup are the only beverages permitted in the theater.
