Located at 6 North Laurel Street, the Altria Theater, formerly the Landmark Theater and The Mosque, was built in 1926 by Shriners as their Acca Temple Shrine. The City of Richmond purchased the venue in 1940.

Some of America’s greatest entertainers have appeared on stage beneath its towering minarets and desert murals.

  • There isn't a bad seat in the house. Parking is fair and not far away. Many options for food and drink area for before or after a show.

  • I visited the Altria Theatre for the first time on October 22 for the Switchfoot+Relient K show. First of all, I was in complete awe everywhere I looked. This theatre is absolutely beautiful! I would come again just to admire the architecture. It is obvious that a lot of money was invested into this place. They didn't skimp on the house sound system either–d&b is a premium brand and it sounded incredible even in my far house-left seat location. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. I look forward to my next visit!
  • This is such a gorgeous theater with all the intricate design inside. It's also pleasantly set up, so pretty much anywhere you sit, you'll have a good view and good sound.
  • Drove up from Va Beach to see Alice in Chains . This is a cool venue for entertainment . Lots of bars , bathrooms and a great staff . Sound system is not as good as the Norva , but this a larger venue . Most definitely worth checking out , located in VCU area of Richmond .
  • Went to see Bill Burr. The staff was very friendly and we got to our seats quickly. The renovations are beautiful.
  • Great venue, you never miss the show even if you have to go to the bathroom, the audio is everywhere!
