  • Providence Performing Arts Center Providence

    .1m away

    The Theatre, which is now called the Providence Performing Arts Center, was opened as a Loew’s Movie Palace on October 6, 1928. It was designed by George and C.W. Rapp of Chicago, renowned theatre architects. Marcus Loew's philosophy was to sell tickets to theatres; this was the inspiration for building this opulent theatre which cost $2.5 million upon completion. On opening day, more than 14,000 people came to see Joe Stoves play the $90,000 Robert Morton organ, accompanying the film “Excess Baggage”. Most people came just to see the magnificence of the interior, sparkling with gilding on intricate plasterwork, columns of imported marble, and huge crystal chandeliers. -- History and Renaissance-- After several decades of sustained success, the theatre's attendance declined mid-century as televisions became more popular. In addition to mounting economic hardships, the theatre suffered damage in the hurricanes of 1938 and 1954. The Theatre narrowly escaped demolition in the 1970s. Now, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and plays a vital role in the City’s ongoing renaissance. The stage house was expanded in 1995, a state-of-the-art sound system was installed in 1996, and the Grand Lobby and Arcade were painstakingly restored to their 1928 splendor in 1998. It is now a world-class facility hosting first-class Broadway touring shows, plays, contemporary acts, concerts, and much more. In place of the organ is a rare, five-manual Mighty Wurlitzer organ; the 28’ by 51’ movie screen again shines brightly with current and classic films. In the Summer of 1999, during Phase 1 of the Auditorium Restoration Project, the proscenium which frames the stage, the wall and ceiling areas under the balcony, and the front edge of the loge were meticulously researched and restored to their original ornate beauty. During Phase 2 in the Summer of 2000, the project completed the restoration work on the ceiling and walls throughout the Auditorium. --Modernization-- In 2000, PPAC got a facelift with the addition of the Providence vertical and full color LED marquee. The entire Theatre was re-carpeted in 2000 in the pattern that duplicates the original from 1928. The summer of 2002 saw the installation of a state of the art computerized HVAC system which provides patrons with a more comfortable and enjoyable theatregoing experience. Standing ground water and asbestos were also removed from the basement during this project. During the summer of 2003, additional sprinklers, smoke, and heat detection equipment were installed within the Theatre, along with new lobby audiovisual equipment including plasma televisions. In summer of 2004, the open fire escapes along Page Street and Richmond Street were replaced with covered, closed stairways for safer egress of patrons; branch wiring to fixtures and receptacles throughout the Theatre and Lobby were replaced; and a custom designed and built chandelier was placed in the main dome of the Theatre. In the summer of 2005, the auditorium’s seats were replaced and an elevator installed that carries patrons between the Lobby and all other levels of the theatre. In 2006, PPAC successfully completed a $7,000,000 Capital Campaign for Facility Improvements, under the leadership of Campaign Co-Chairs and PPAC Trustees Jack Kramer and Mark T. Ryan. This campaign raised funds for further capital improvement projects to complete the restoration of the Theatre to its original 1928 splendor. Today, the beauty of the Theatre combined with the excellence of the productions makes every event at the Providence Performing Arts Center a work of art.

  • Sakis Providence

    .1m away

    Sakis Pizzeria was established on August 5, 1982 and was founded by owner Dionisios (Dennis) Sampalis. The goal was to create a pizzeria serving delicious, affordable food with a Greek twist to the downtown Providence public. The small family business was opened in one of Providence’s oldest historic buildings, across the street from the Providence Preforming Arts Center and Johnson & Wales University. In 2010, after years of planning, the Sampalis family undertook the renovations of the historic building and the restaurant, transforming Sakis Pizzeria to include a full service pizzeria, bar and grille. Today, as you enter the pizzeria, a winding staircase leads you to the new mezzanine overlooking Weybosset Street, where our clientele can enjoy a few drinks while sampling our new menu and watching a sports game. Our redesigned menu features new items and old favorites including specialty pizzas, salads, wraps, paninis, grinders, pasta dishes, club sandwiches, various seafood platters, Greek sandwiches and Greek pastries. We take pride in every dish that leaves our kitchen and hope that Sakis Pizzeria is and will continue to be your neighborhood choice for dining in or taking out. We greatly appreciate our loyal customers that we have been serving since 1982 and look forward to impressing our new customers! We thank you for your business and continued support!
