Manchester Theaters Exhibit

Manchester Theaters

A new exhibition about Manchester’s historic theaters opens at the Millyard Museum on Monday September 19, 5:30 PM. It’s Showtime! A History of Manchester’s Theaters will run through December 17. This exhibit will showcase the Palace Theatre – which is beginning its second century as a cultural fixture in the city – as well as the many iconic theaters that live on in the memories of Manchester residents, such as the State, the Strand, the Lyric, the Modern, the Vitaphone, the Crown and so many others.

Extraordinary photos from the MHA’s own collection will be complemented by artifacts, posters, costumes, memorabilia and mementoes from the Vaudeville and Burlesque era right through to the city’s many motion picture palaces.
Entrance to the exhibition is included with regular admission. On Thursday, September 22 the final Open Doors Trolley Tour will be running from 5pm to 8 pm and admission to the Millyard Museum will be free. Check here for complete list of participating venues
