Keith-Albee Theatre

Huntington, WV

Regarded as one of West Virginia’s most distinctive landmarks, Huntington’s Keith-Albee Theatre was built by the Greater Huntington Theatre Corporation in 1928. Thomas W. Lamb, one of America’s foremost theatre architects, designed the Keith-Albee in the ornate Spanish Baroque style. The remarkably well-preserved structure includes a four-story dressing room tower and fully equipped, “fly-system” theatrical stage as well as a gigantic retractable motion picture screen and a top quality theatre organ. When completed, the “atmospheric” theatre seated 2,633 patrons in a simulated courtyard beneath a starlit sky.

Today, the theatre is owned and operated by the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center Foundation. The Keith-Albee’s importance to the community and region remains enormous as it continues to feature a range of outstanding national and local productions and film festivals. It is also a popular setting for benefits, conferences and weddings.

Box Office is located in Marshall University's Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center, open 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Box Office at Keith-Albee open day of show one hour before show time.
