Apollo Theater

The Apollo

One of the landmarks of Harlem, the Apollo Theater is perhaps best known for its amateur night and the syndicated television show that brings African-American talent into millions of homes. The Apollo has been and continues to be more than just a jumping off point for aspiring talent, however. The theater screens films and hosts rock and gospel concerts, benefits and theater performances.


Family events at the Apollo include Kwanzaa and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebrations as well as film screenings for the whole family.

The Apollo offers school group tours that take an investigative look at the famed venue’s history and provides teachers with an in-class study guide.

Fees: Mon-Fri $16; Sat-Sun $18
