News About This Theater
- Jan 8, 2007 — Academy of Music ends movie run
This classic turn of the century music hall turned vaudeville house was reborn as the home of first run movies in collegiate Northampton. In the 1940 and into the 1950’s it was operated by the Herman Rifkin Theaters chain.
Now a performing arts centre, with a steady stream of art house and European cinema, the Academy of Music is the small town answer to the opera house. Complete with its original balconies and private boxes, the Academy of Music is a portal to the 19th century.
The theater’s classic beauty and sheer size (it’s the largest single screen movie theater in the area) have made it a landmark in Northampton.
