Behind the Curtain of the United Palace Theatre

The magic of the movies awaits you on a tour of an exquisitely restored Loew's "Wonder Theatre."

Travel back in time to 1930 and the heyday of American theater as you tour the majestic United Palace Theatre.

You'll see NYC's 4th largest theater and northern Manhattan's fastest-growing arts and cultural center up close and personal with a tour by Executive Director Mike Fitelson.

View and explore all the nooks and crannies of one of the most ornate and beautiful theaters NYC has to offer. From the Grand Foyer to the 3,400-seat house to the balcony and even the stage, you'll get a one-of-a-kind experience inside this original Loew's Wonder Theatre.
