About Tarrytown Music Hall
The historic 843-seat Music Hall, built in 1885, is the oldest theater in Westchester County. The Music Hall was one of the first theaters to show silent films in 1901. From the 1930’s on, the Music Hall was operated by local benefactor Robert Goldblatt and first run films were presented. The theater closed in 1976 largely due to the rise in popularity of multiplexes and television. The Friends of the Mozartina Musical Arts Conservatory, purchased the theater in 1980 on Valentine’s Day, with the purpose of establishing a center for the performing arts. As there was no money available for a staff, the theater was completely operated by volunteers for twenty-three years. The Friends placed the Music Hall on the National Register for Historic Places in 1980. Today, the Music Hall is a fully operating theater, offering the best in music, theater, dance, and film. It has become a cultural destination, attracting over 85,000 people including 25,000 children on an annual basis from all over the tri-state area.
