From the box office to the balcony, the Madame Walker Theatre is the quintessential showplace—an elegant, yet vibrant reminder of an era when theatres were as much a spectacle as the shows themselves. Our historic treasure can be the perfect venue for your special event.

Regal design, dramatic detail, plush seating and sculptured splendor make the theatre a truly majestic place. The Madame Walker Theatre contains one of the few remaining African Art Deco motifs in the country. The interior ornamentation includes 150 original colors hand-applied during restoration, sphinx statuary, cubist-inspired African masks, 20-foot spears and brass embellishments.

The Madame Walker Theatre, where painstaking restoration and preservation have returned the building to its original elegance, is the cornerstone of the building. It is perfect for pageants, musicals, concerts, lecturers, auditions and rehearsals, motion picture and video screenings, ceremonial awards presentations and other events
that require elegant staging.

Please note – to maintain the integrity of our theatre, you must use our designated light and sound company. There are no exceptions.

A Few Amenities Include:
  • Seating capacity of 935
  • Full stage with an Austrian-hung grand drape and dressing rooms
  • Lobby, box office services, bar, catering and technical services
  • Free and secure parking adjacent to the building.
