 Overview

Radio City Music Hall, nicknamed “the Showplace of the Nation”, opened in December 1932. The vast Art Deco music hall is part of the Rockefeller Center complex. Radio City seats 5,960 across four levels - the huge Orchestra level and three shallow mezzanines. The theatre’s elaborate stage elevator system was so advanced that the US Navy incorporated the design into World War II aircraft carriers, and stationed guards on-site during the war to keep prying eyes away.
