One of the best places in NYC to see a show. Amazing acoustics and beautifully redone. Used to come see the Allman Brothers many times during each of the March runs.

Went to see Jerry Seinfeld's homestand at the beacon. Was really impressed with the insides of the theater. The sides are covered with an amazing mural and the decor, all around, was stunning. The bar was impressively stocked, also

We were lucky and saw a great show, but the inside of the theatre is impressive, I am sorry I did not take a picture to show, but the columns they have on the laterals are first class. It is a must see theatre!

This is a vintage old time NY theatre. The ambiance is awesome. The sound could not be better. One of the best places you can see a major act.
