Voice of the City
Welcome to Benson Theatre! Our home was built in 1923 as a vaudeville theatre. In its day, vaudeville – which translates to 'voice of the city' – was a meeting place, an inclusive form of theatre that flourished especially in New York, where it fostered cultural exchange among the city's ethnic groups.
Our Roots
The Benson Theatre first operated as the Benalto Theater from 1923 to 1926. It could seat an assembly of 400 for vaudeville performances, film screenings and community events.
