Theater History

The Broadway Theatre opened in 1924 as a movie theater, perhaps most well known for playing Walt Disney’s Steamboat Willie in 1928 and Fantasia in 1939. It was renamed the Broadway in 1930 when it became a Broadway theater, but it quickly became a movie theater once again in 1934. But it returned to live theater in 1940 and has mostly remained a Broadway house since then. Recent productions include Here Lies Love, King Kong, Fiddler on the Roof, Sister Act, Promises, Promises, and The Color Purple.
