Originally built in 1926,The Belasco Theater has played host to live performances, concerts, and special theatrical events since it was first held it’s opening attraction entitled ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ by Anita Loos and became a hotspot for Hollywood performers and directors. It then closed down in 1952 and was used as a church until 1984 and until 2011 was used for film shoots.
In 2011, The Belasco was redesigned and reopened for business with most of its original architecture and design intact. Featured in ‘Being John Malkovich’, ‘Swordfish’, ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’, and ‘The Presitge’; a visit to The Belasco is a truly visceral and visual experience. Taking place in The Belasco’s 2 story outdoor area, the production setup will be unequivocal and complement the open air atmosphere. Starting in the mid-afternoon and continuing well into the evening, the ambience and aura will be unprecedented in this fabled venue.
