Minneapolis, Minnesota

If you've never been to Minneapolis, well, it's probably time to change that. Though it sometimes gets a bad rep for its serious winters, which are also as beautiful as it comes by the way, this is a city that has tons of culture backing it up. The rich sports scene includes the Twins of MLB, the Vikings of the NFL and the T-Wolves of the NBA, giving fans plenty to cheer about from year to year thanks to the unbelievable professional sports talent that is always around the city.

But even though it's obviously great to see the pros do their thing, it's hard to get any more exciting than watching top-tier college basketball. When it's only pride and school spirit on the line, the whole game is taken to a completely different level, making it always a good idea to come out and see what all the buzz is about around Minneapolis. Once you make it to Minneapolis, you'll be kicking yourself for not checking it out sooner.

Pantages Theatre Minneapolis Trivia

Did you know that Pantages Theatre reopened as a cinema house in 1961 with Spartacus?

Though it was previously a movie house as well, opening with film noir classic Gilda in the 1940s, it was opened in a big way (then as the Mann Theatre) in 1961 with Stanley Kubrick's Oscar-winning classic Spartacus, bringing spectacle to the screen in a very big way. Starring Kirk Douglas, Spartacus is the mostly true story of an enslaved gladiator who led a major rebellion against the Roman Empire, back in the days just prior to Julius Caesar's rise. Though Kubrick is known mostly for other classics like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Dr. Strangelove and A Clockwork Orange, his direction for Spartacus helped make him a cinematic star, guiding the film to four Academy Awards and big returns at the box office.

And when it was first playing at this site, people around town got the message that it was going to be bringing one big show after another over the years – a tradition that Pantages Theatre maintained when it made the switch to live theater and concert events.
