News About This Theater
Built in 1852, by renown Philadelphian architect, Samuel Sloan, the Fulton Opera House is the oldest continuously operating theatre in the United States. An equally impressive fact is that it’s one of only THREE national historic landmark theatres.
Its Victorian design and two balconies are in sharp contrast to the movie palaces built between the mid-1920’s and throughout the 1930’s. Different, of course, but every bit as impressive as a 3,000+ seat movie palace. This 683 seat gem with its beautiful interior restoration compares favorably to any theatre I’ve seen.
