What It's Like

Before walking into the grand auditorium, you’ll get a sense of the Hippodrome’s rich history on your stroll through the lobby. The curved walls are adorned with nostalgic photos from the theatre’s early days as a famed vaudeville and movie palace. Inside the auditorium, you’ll marvel at the stunning architecture, including the beautifully restored allegorical painting above the proscenium arch.

Don't Miss

Come to the theatre two hours before show time to enjoy a delicious light meal at The Hipp Café. Connected to the Hippodrome on the Baltimore Street side, the café serves salads, sandwiches, soups, and other small entrees, all made fresh and from scratch.
