At the time of its opening in 1932, Radio City Music Hall was the world's largest movie theatre with seating for just over 6,000 patrons. The striking art deco interior, both grand and yet intimate at the same time, was declared a New York City landmark in 1978.

Up until 1979 Radio City Music Hall ran a program of feature films combined with a spectacular stage show. In the 1970s changes in the film industry made it difficult to obtain exclusive film bookings, eventually bringing an end to the regular film showings. The theatre was about to be converted to office space, but was saved, renovated and reopened in 1980. While still presenting some movie premiers and feature runs the main focus is now on music concerts and live stage shows including the annual Radio City Christmas Spectacular. It has also hosted the Grammy, Tony and MTV Music awards.

The Music Hall also boasts the largest pipe organ ever built for a cinema. Made by Wurlitzer the pipe organ has 4,410 pipes. and four keyboards.

In addition to taking in a live performance, for a nominal fee you can also enjoy the fascinating Stage Door Tour of Radio City Music Hall which runs daily from 11am to 3pm.

Nearby attractions include Rockefeller Centre, Museum of Modern Art, St. Patrick's Cathedral and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Radio City Music Hall Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating First time in this venue and is beautiful (it feels like a vintage style)! I came with my family during the holiday season and we saw the Rockettes which it was a great show for all ages, totally put you in the Christmas Spirit! the coordination of the dancers are super impressive. The bathrooms are clean and the lines move very quick. They have snacks and drinks (pricey). All staff are super friendly! I can’t wait to come to see a new show/concert!

5 Star Rating Amazing venue! They had a great selection of food/snacks along with wine and drinks. I loved the vintage look of the restrooms as well! I had an overall amazing time at this venue hall!! I ubered and wound up getting out a block before because it does get congested with traffic.

5 Star Rating The acoustics are just mind blowing! If you are in NYC then make it a point to attend an event. We saw IL Volo and the show was great but the sound just carried throughout. It was so clean that you could feel it. There's a lot of walking here to get to your seat so be mindful if you need assistance. Otherwise it was a very memorable event.

5 Star Rating Great voices, awesome dance choreographies, and strict but friendly staffs! It's a great once in a while show to watch with family and friends. Make sure to come early & get your popcorn and drinks - the line gets pretty long and the lobby gets crowded. Best seats would probably in the middle aisle at the center; not too far, not too close to the stage. Better hope person in front of you isn't taller than you.

5 Star Rating How do you review one of the best venues to see any show at? If you can see a show here, this is the place to see it. We came to see Lord of the Rings in concert and they know how to make an incredible evening. It's gorgeous, incredibly comfortable and the sound is amazing. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Everyone is incredibly friendly and makes sure that you have absolutely everything that you need. I do wish they would let you bring in sealed bottled waters but that is my only suggestion! I hope I get to return some day as it was one of those experiences I will never forget.
