In Pictures: An inside look at the Eccles Theater

The Eccles Theater is still a year away from completion, but the impact of the theater on the downtown area can already be felt.  The theater provides multiple access points to Main and Regent Streets, and three-floors of glass walls that open up to Main Street and the downtown skyline.  The Eccles theater includes a 2,500-seat main hall, a third-floor terrace, patron and VIP lounge areas, black box theater, rehearsal space and several public gathering spaces.

Construction on the Eccles Theater and the adjacent 111 Main, will be completed late summer of 2016.  The theater will share a lobby with the 24-story, 111 Main office tower.  The theater will have a soft opening early fall of 2016, with the first show expected November of next year.
