Bushnell Memorial Theatre (Official)
Styles: Art Deco
The Bushnell Memorial Theatres opened January 13, 1930. Although primarily a venue for concerts, opera, ballet, and touring Broadway productions, it has also been used over the decades as a motion-picture theatre. In 1937 Frank Capra’s “Lost Horizon” received its premiere here followed by a regular run in the same house. Other films were shown here, much in the same way they were shown at Symphony Hall in Boston. A feature of the auditorium is its ceiling, a huge (largest in the USA) painted mural named ‘Drama’ which is the work of artist Barry Faulkner. The Bushnell Memorial Theatre is equipped with an Austin 4 manual theatre organ which has 112 speaking stops and 8,000 pipes.
