Rock Hall Theatre Get In Your Face

Posted By on Fri, Oct 23, 2009 at 2:29 PM

Over the years, dedicated rock fans have heard music legends from the Dead Boys to Pete Seeger hold forth in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s 4th Floor Theatre, sitting for interviews and/or playing impromptu, unplugged or stripped-down sets on the small stage. Now the space is getting a facelift to expand its functions, and a new name, the Foster Theater, in honor of benefactors Gregg and Madelyn Foster.

The renovated theater will feature upgraded sound, better lighting, a larger screen and state-of-the-art projection, and increased seating. It will be fitted with improved recording capacity, for archiving the events that take place there and to live-stream its educational programs. The theater will also boast 3D film-screening capability, which will show off starting next Tuesday, October 27 with U2 3D, a concert film shot in Buenos Aires in 2006 on the final leg of U2’s Vertigo tour. The film will screen daily through January 2. It’s free with museum admission. — Anastasia Pantsios
