10 Amazing Art Deco Theaters

Extravagant materials, bold lines and shapes, and lots of color! These are some of the most recognizable characteristics of the Art Deco architectural style that was so popular during the 1920s and 1930s. During these decades, Art Deco practically became synonymous with the glamorous and majestic new theaters popping up all over the United States. With names like Fox and Paramount, these amazing theaters brought Hollywood and “talkies” to the doorsteps of America. While few of these grand old theaters survive today, even fewer have been restored or maintained enough to retain their original Art Deco elements — a devastating loss of American history. Fortunately, the 10 amazing Art Deco theaters on this list are the exceptions, and continue to thrill their audiences with flashy lights, ornate architectural details, and other Old Hollywood glam. Fargo Theatre Fargo, North Dakota It’s hard to miss the amazing Art Deco details of the Fargo Theatre in Fargo, North Dakota. The theater’s facade is dominated by the gorgeous light-up marquee and tower. The Art Deco architectural details continue inside with an inverted dome ceiling, lots of color, and an ornate stage. Today, the Fargo is used as an art house theater and concert venue, and has been given a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Fox Theater Hutchinson, Kansas The old Fox Theaters were some of the best examples of Art Deco architecture built in the United States, and the Fox Theater in Hutchinson, Kansas is no exception. In 1999, this Fox Theater was lovingly restored to its former glory and rewarded with a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Some of the theater’s best examples of Art Deco style include a colorful and flashy neon marquee, terra cotta reliefs, elaborate door moldings, plus plenty of cartouches, friezes, pilasters, and stepped treatments. Grand Lake Theater Oakland, California Oakland’s Grand Lake Theater has been a vaudeville stage and a Fox movie palace, and is today one of the most amazing theaters built in the Art Deco style. The theater, which still functions as a popular cinema, has retained many of its original architectural details. A stunning crystal chandelier still hangs in the lobby, an old Mighty Wurlitzer organ is still brought out for special occasions, and classic frescoes still adorn the walls of the auditoriums (our favorite is the Sahara themed fresco, complete with palm trees and sand dunes). Paramount Theatre Middletown, New York There may not be any celebratory parades planned like there were when it opened for the first time, but the Paramount Theatre is still one of the most amazing Art Deco theaters in the U.S. Located in Middletown, New York, the Paramount boasts such details as colorful ornate walls and ceilings, balconies, and a heavy red curtain that opens before each show.
