Downtown Minneapolis Theater Guide

At the center of downtown Minneapolis is the coveted Theater District. Performers from around the country and around the globe make their way to the row of historic theaters that have defined the cultural heartbeat of the city for nearly a century. Orpheum Theatre, State Theatre and Pantages Theatre all opened in the early 1900s as some of the most technologically advanced and elaborate theaters of their time. Today, having been restored and renovated to meet and exceed today’s advancements in theatrical technology, the theaters welcome regional, national and international productions throughout the year. Recent acts include Tony Bennett at the Orpheum Theatre, Lyle Lovett at the State Theatre and Bruce Hornsby at the Pantages Theatre.
