Radio City Music Hall
About Radio City Music Hall
The iconic Radio City Music Hall in midtown Manhattan is aptly nicknamed the “Showplace of the Nation.” The massive 6,015-seat theater — one of the biggest in the nation — has a marquee than spans the entire length of a New York City block. It’s home to the high-kicking Radio City Rockettes, and has attracted more than 300 million visitors from around the world for its varied programming — everything from film premieres to rock concerts to dance shows to awards ceremonies. The renowned entertainment venue is part of the Rockefeller Center complex, which includes the headquarters of NBC, the Rainbow Room, the epochal Christmas tree, and the world-famous ice skating rink. Opened in 1932, Radio City Music Hall remains a shrine of Art Deco design. Its golden proscenium arch stretches 100 feet wide and 60 feet high. Highlights of its interior design include a grand 40-foot high mural, bronze doors with low-reliefs, and even a gold leaf ceiling.
