Landmark Theatre - Syracuse History
Landmark Theatre was originally known as Loew's State Theatre and originally
functioned as a posh movie palace. It is the only remaining movie palace in all of Syracuse although it now primarily is used
as a theater for big productions like Broadway style musicals. The venue has been added to the National Registry of Historic
Places and has been recently renovated from 2010 through 2011. These days Landmark Theatre is one of the premiere venues in
all of New York to catch a show.
Landmark Theatre - Syracuse Events
The Landmark Theatre has had many
uses over the years. It began as a vaudeville theater and movie palace, but eventually after the end of the vaudeville era
became less and less used before falling into disrepair in the Seventies. Since its 2010 renovation the theater has been used
as both a concert hall and a stage for big theatrical productions. Some of the big shows that have taken place at Landmark
Theatre include Tyler Perry's Hell Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned and Sesame Street Live events. Additionally there have
been performances by big time rock acts like Alice in Chains and Joe Bonamassa.

the first golf course in the United States that was established in 1901. Additionally there are plenty of activities in which
