overview

This architectural wonder in the Gothic District of Scranton boasts 9 venue spaces including a ballroom that doubles as the backstage of the theater. Designed by the same architect as Rockefeller Center, Raymond Hood, the building was constructed so multiple groups can host functions or meetings while also providing private floors for the masons. The Scranton Cultural Center is home to Scranton's Broadway shows as well as various national and regional artists. Visitors can also tour the 180,000 sq. ft. building every Saturday morning to learn the history of its construction, private Mason quarters, and its legendary performers such as Frank Sinatra, Yul Brenner, Billy Joel, and Willie Nelson.
