Minneapolis, Minnesota is home to many beautiful theaters-the Guthrie Theatre, the State Theatre, and the Orpheum. Yet it is the Pantages Theatre that has recently emerged as a hot spot for both local and national productions and concerts, due in part to a recent renovation and 2002 re-opening.
The Pantages Theatre is housed in a historic building on Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The original Pantages Theatre structures was a whopping twelve-story complex and owned by namesake Alexander Pantages, a Greek immigrant who opened 500 theatres nationwide.
Over the course of many decades, the Pantages Theatre experienced physical/structural changes. It was dramatically reduced to a more suitable two stories and equipped with air conditioning, thereby becoming the first air conditioned theatre in Minnesota. The Pantages Theatre fell upon hard times and was eventually closed in 1984. However, after recognizing its potential and rich history, the building was restored and reopened recently.
Now Minneapolis' Pantages Theatre hosts a variety of live entertainment and is a proud member of the Hennepin Theatre District. Pantages Theatre performers include KD Lang and Karen Mueller. The Pantages Theatre's intimate venue allows for a new sort of live entertainment experience as audience members interact with performers.
