American Theater Building – Latest Design

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of US Theater Buildings. We aim to include theater buildings / projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed US Theater buildings, new building designs and architecture competitions across the United States of America. The focus is on contemporary US theater buildings but information on traditional theater buildings in the USA is also welcome.
