This white hulk of a building, with its "Classic Revival" architecture, looks like it should belong in Washington DC rather than Colorado. Built in 1923 for the amazingly low sum of just over $424,000, it, over the years, has brought entertainment to the masses. With a seating capacity of over 8,000, it still attracts concerts, lectures, boxing matches and auctions. Dining options during the day can be found in the City Auditorium Cafe (7am-2pm Tue-Sun).
For more than 60 years, this symphony orchestra has been one of Colorado's leading ambassadors of high culture. The Pikes Peak Center serves as the philharmonic's home base, but it also performs all over that state including the revered Red Rocks Park in Denver. Led by conductor, Lawrence Leighton Smith, the symphony is wide ranging and performs classical masterworks, big band favorites and, in the past, has played Beatles tributes and accompanied the Moody Blues on stage.
This 2000-seat center is a veritable shrine to the creative mind. The Colorado Springs Chorale, the Colorado Springs Dance Theatre, and the Colorado Springs Symphony all call it home. Every seat offers a good view of the stage, making it one the more intimate performance halls in the state. In addition, the center also stages rock concerts featuring some of the biggest names in music, Broadway musical plays, a lecture series and occasionally presents art exhibits.
Situated in the heart of the US Air Force Academy , the Arnold Hall Theater, as it is usually referred to as, gives you a beautiful view of the plush greenery surrounding it. Over the years the theater has enthralled and entertained audiences with the likes of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning play 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof', Broadway Musical Adventure 'Peter Pan', a variety of other circuses, concerts and the likes. It played host to some of the best plays and concerts in the world, and it continues to do so even today.
