“In the heart of Savannah's Historic District”
1921 vintage theatre in the heart of Savannah's Historic District. Venue for concerts, opera, film, stageplays and more. Arthur Lucas and architect C.K. Howell opened the Lucas Theatre in December 1921. The theater’s design was a culmination of more than two years of collaboration between Lucas and Howell, and combined Lucas’ favorite architectural details from the Greek revival, Adams-inspired, Art Deco and Neoclassical periods. Lucas owned more than 40 theaters in the South – six of them in Savannah – but the Lucas was the only one to bear his name. From the outset, he intended the Lucas to be a “preminent amusement palace.” He was also very community-oriented. He wrote numerous essays about art and theatre’s place in people’s lives. He wrote letters of welcome to new residents and newborn children in Savannah.
Lucas is my favorite theatre in Savannah. They play many classics, and are always very friendly. Definitely recommend!
(And it's GORGEOUS inside to boot)
