More than 2000-capacity venue designed by David Rockwell and opened in 2005 replaced the infamous Astor Plaza Movie Theater. The theater is rather young but already popular and famous for being chosen to receive many bright shows.
It has a large hall featuring one of the largest on Broadway high-definition screens, where a big area of sitting places combined with a standing room. The theater can without any doubts be called one the most modern spaces of art because it contains some staff for phones and other media devices, as well as two private mezzanines, green room and lots of other features.
So, the ‘theater’ is no more than just a name: Best Buy Theater organizes events, parties, shows, award shows, concerts, and more.
Previously also being called Nokia Theatre, Best Buy Theatre has recently been taken over by Sony Computer Entertainment and since October 2015 is known as PlayStation Theatre.
