The Music Hall, built in 1878, has been designated an American Treasure by the federal government.
It's certainly considered a treasure in and around the New Hampshire Seacoast region, featuring live musical and comedy performances, films, readings by world-famous authors, and more. The lobby was recently restored in a fanciful Beaux Arts style that itself is worth a visit.
Choose a film and plan a dinner before or after at one of the many downtown Portsmouth restaurant options for the perfect dinner-and-a-movie evening.
There's lots to do for kids, too, including a School Days matinee film series, monthly KidsRULE! movies, and KidsRULE! live performances.
The new Music Hall Loft, just around the corner, also offers a variety of programs in a more modern, more casual setting.
