Temple Theatre Tours

The Temple Theatre has been a beautiful structure from the concept blueprints of the mid 1920’s, to our present day facility. After undergoing a $7 Million renovation in 2003, the Temple Theatre is just as magnificent now as it was in 1927, but with modern amenities to accommodate various forms of today’s greatest entertainment.
