Experience the backstage magic for yourself! Built in 1926 as a silent movie palace, our landmark theater reflects the evolution of both the film industry and Frederick County. Led by an experienced tour guide, you’ll discover Art Deco architectural details, immerse yourself in local theatrical lore, and access backstage areas normally off-limits to the public. Tours are approximately 45-60 minutes and are free of charge.
