I officiated a wedding that had to be moved from the Yawkey House to the Grand in less than three hours due to rain. The staff at the Grand did an amazing job and continued to ask how they could help. Well done!

This wonderful old theatre has been revamped and is a terrific venue for bands, plays and other staged performances. Stay downtown and grab dinner at other revamped restaurants and enjoy.

My wife/I "discovered" the Grand Theater about 10 years ago after moving up from Illinois. It is truly a remarkable venue for a wide variety of entertainment. Annually, they book artistic performers from across the globe.

Yes, there is. It can be raised and lowered from the orchestra pit and has been used for several venues. We're very fortunate to have Dan Larson as an organist for this beautiful organ!
