The Ziegfeld Theatre was a legendary movie palace that hosted more premieres than any other venue outside Hollywood.  Pictured, the star-studded opening of  Cabaret.

A Legendary History

Opening its doors in 1969,  The Ziegfeld was constructed as a grand, single screen movie palace just steps away from the original Ziegfeld Theatre—a landmark unto itself—built by Broadway impresario Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr., in 1927.

From its opening night until the curtain fell for seemingly the last time in 2016, the theatre hosted more premieres of Hollywood blockbuster films than any other venue outside of Los Angeles.

In Fall 2017, the curtain rose once again, this time for a unique second act:  as a sophisticated event space inspired the luxury ocean liners of the 1930s.

Designed by prolific architect Richard Bloch with a crisp interior palette of silver and white redolent of its Art Deco heritage, the column-free ballroom can be configured to accommodate over 1,300 guests, and lives on as a premier venue—a place where history continues to be made.

Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. was a legendary showman who built a theater to match his reputation.
The original Ziegfeld Theatre was located steps away from the site of the current Ziegfeld Ballroom.
The Ziegfeld name was synonymous with showbusiness in the Golden Age of entertainment, and remains so today.

World renowned for the quality of its sound and projection—and for an ornate design that evoked the long-gone ‘20s movie palaces that once lined Broadway and Seventh Avenue—the Ziegfeld was for decades one of the country’s best-known movie venues.
