Architectural Building
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. One of the best known and most striking buildings in Richmond, the Altria Theater plays host to a variety of events including Broadway, The Richmond Forum, concerts, comedians, children’s theater, lectures, school commencements and fashion shows. Some of America’s greatest entertainers have appeared on stage beneath its towering minarets and desert murals. Known for its excellent acoustics, the Altria Theater boasts one of the largest proscenium stages on the East Coast. The theater is currently undergoing major renovations to bring the building back to its former glory.

  • The interior is really beautiful, and I love that there were bathrooms on every floor. Unfortunately, my knees were up against the chair in front of me the entire performance, and I'm not even tall. I...  more »

  • Beautiful theatre and the seating is about as comfy as it should be. Enough to sit for a few hours and be content. I give four stars because out of the many talks, and concerts I've been to the sound hasn't 100% quality. Definitely good sound system for four stars. But I would except the audio team to be at the same level of quality as the rest of the organization. Great place, but not perfection ;)
  • The so give me this theater only three stars because despite the beautiful scenery and everything there was just no line organization or parking organization. I'm sitting here probably going to be about 30 minutes trying to leave the parking lot and when I went in I saw him no one directing traffic. Hard to believe that this theater has Broadway level shows with Broadway level crowds but no one to manage crowds or traffic. If you come here probably best to park somewhere else and walk or have a friend drop you off.
  • Beautiful structure. They have done a nice remodeling the theater. Great views and comfortable seats.
  • Beautiful venue but the seats are so cramped. There is no leg room at all in balcony seats. The old tile and paint on the ceiling is gorgeous though. Great location.
  • Very spacious, the sounds​ were not to loud, it was right on point. They had everyone moving right along. I was very satisfied.
