Our Vision

Built in 1927 as the flagship movie palace for United Artists — the maverick film studio founded by Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, D.W Griffith and Charlie Chaplin — The Theatre at Ace Hotel is our loving reanimation of one of the city's most remarkable gems. It's a delicately restored, 1,600-seat cathedral to the arts, with a three-story, 2,300 square foot grand lobby, an ornate open balcony and a vaulted ceiling dotted with thousands of mirrors that glimmer like tiny stars.

Since helping to returning The Theatre to its storied splendor, we've played host to hundreds of meaningful, nearly sacred, wholly rock and roll experiences: large-scale concerts, major movie premieres, sold-out dance performances — if it fits inside the proscenium, we've probably presented it. Retrofitted with a state-of-the-art digital projection system and cinema sound, an independent, ultramodern live sound system, plus an elaborate contemporary stage lighting system, The Theatre at Ace Hotel is a radically inclusive stage fit for our heart's royalty — artists, musicians, visionaries and cultural igniters.
