The Irvington Town Hall Theater was built in 1902 in the Classic Revival Style. Designed by A. J. Manning and patterned after the Ford Theater in Washington, DC, the Theater is a multipurpose concert hall/music theater located on the entire third floor of Town Hall in downtown Irvington, New York. The 432-seat theater features an orchestra, mezzanine, balcony and six charming gold leafed boxes, a proscenium stage and thrust complete with five backstage dressing rooms. Theater patrons sit in intimate ambiance. Gleaming white columns and Ionic capitals set off the warm ivory interior. The walls are wainscoted in warm oak. Victorian chandeliers and sconces were copied from the originals, during the restoration to its original elegance in 1980. A plush red stage curtain and a forty-two foot high skylight complete the setting. Architecturally significant, the Theater is listed on the national Register of Historic Places. With pleasing proportions and marvelous acoustics, the Theater has been touted as "one of the finest municipal halls in eastern New York State" by Alvah French History of Westchester County, "A jewel of a theater on the Hudson" by Robert Sherman New York Times and "Acoustically superb" by Lou Cevetillo Opera Critic Gannett Newspapers. Clocktower Players, the resident theater company of the Irvington Town Hall Theater, produces jubilant, vibrant theater month after month and provides programming for budding actors ages 4 to 104.
