Providence Performing Arts Center - Providence, RI

Providence Performing Arts Center is a gem in the heart of the city’s arts and entertainment district. Opened in 1928 as Loew’s State Movie Palace, it quickly became known as the “Jewel of Weybosset Street” and is the second-largest theater of its kind in the United States.

The theater features crystal chandeliers, marble columns and intricate plasterwork. It has gone through many upgrades over the years, including an extensive, multiphase restoration project that returned the venue to its original beauty. It was named to the National Register of Historic Places in the 1970s.

Providence Performing Arts Center attracts audiences each year with a variety of events, from concerts to Broadway productions. Legendary rock acts including the Doors and Van Morrison have taken the stage at the theater, and productions of Wicked and Les Misérables have entertained visitors as well. It has launched a notable 13 national Broadway touring acts, including Rogers and Hammerstein’s King and I in November 2016.

Providence Performing Arts Center is conveniently located off Interstate 95. Parking is readily available in nearby garages and lots, and the venue provides curbside drop-off just outside its front door. A variety of restaurant options, including pizza, seafood and steak, are all within walking distance of the venue. Accommodations are available at several hotels within a few blocks.

The theater encourages visitors to arrive at performances no less than 30 minutes before showtime. Outside food and beverages are prohibited, but concessions are sold at the venue. Cameras and audio/video devices are not allowed inside.
