Located on Charlottesville’s historic Downtown Mall, The Jefferson Theater was established in 1912 as a live performance theater that played host to silent movies, vaudeville acts and a historic list of live performers, ranging from Harry Houdini to The ThreeStooges.
The Jefferson reopened on November 27, 2009 after a comprehensive restoration that highlights the theater's vintage architecture while modernizing it's facilities. The theater features two full-service bars on separate floors, a restored balcony, new central air and heating systems, and new restrooms throughout the facility. In addition, state-of-the art sound and lighting systems and treatments to the theater's acoustics make The Jefferson an excellent environment to experience live music.
