This week our Utica Landmark was the Stanley Theater

We're giving you a different view of Utica Landmarks via drone photos. This week we chose the Stanley Theater where we enjoy world class performances and entertainment.

Originally built to be a movie palace, The Stanley opened on September 10, 1928, with 2,963 seats. Constructed in just 13 months, it was designed by famous architect Thomas Lamb, who is considered one of the foremost designers of theaters and cinemas in the 20th century. His creations include the Fox Theatre in San Francisco and the Capitol Theatre in New York, both now demolished. It is one of three remaining Lamb theaters: The Stanley, Proctor’s Theatre, Schenectady, NY, and The Landmark Theatre, Syracuse, NY.
