Otis Redding was discovered here. Ma Rainey, Cab Calloway, Little Richard and many others also performed in this theater during its run from 1921 to the '70s. It stood silent for 20 years until the City of Macon restored and reopened it in January 1997, as a state-of-the-art film, performance and meeting venue. Now, it pays tribute to African Americans' influence on film and theater. Visitors can experience its original opulence while watching 3-D films. In addition, live musical and theatrical performances occur at night, while the adjoining annex offers function space and a complete catering kitchen for other functions.
