The Marquis Theatre is futuristic-looking on the outside and even better on the inside. The Marquis Theatre could be on this list just for its impressive design alone. The Marquis Theatre features a sharp edged metal awning which makes this theatre one of the coolest looking Broadway theatres from the outdoor street perspective.
The front facing facade is light gray and metallic, which is what gives the theatre its sleek and futuristic look. The ceiling over the theatre’s box office is also metallic and has speckled lights which shine throughout it. The interior of the theatre is grandiose and large and offers great seats with ample leg room and good sight lines from most locations. The Marquis Theatre also has three bars/concession stands located on the first floor, as well as one on the mezzanine level that are equipped with great bartenders for theatregoers to go.
Theatregoers can go to them to pre-order drinks and cocktails before the start of the show and will have their drinks delightfully made and ready for them at the time of the shows intermission. The theatre’s mixologist has also crafted a specialized menu with fun, New York and Broadway show themed drinks on it for patrons.
