Holiday Open House at the Virginia Theatre

November 25, 2017

Date/Time: Sat, Nov 25, 2017 – 4pm-6pm (before the Parade of Lights)

Tickets: FREE

The Champaign Park District invites you to get warmed up at the Virginia Theatre with our annual Holiday Open House, this Saturday from 4-6pm, just before the Parade of Lights in downtown Champaign!

Tour the opulent 1921 Virginia’s lobbies, auditorium, projection booth, and stage, and see theatre staff operate some of the facility’s stage equipment. Enjoy complimentary hot chocolate, coffee by Columbia Street Roastery, and our famous popcorn as you listen to house organist David Schroeder – who will be playing the Virginia’s original Wurlitzer Pipe Organ – while performers from the Champaign Urbana Theatre Company sing Christmas Carols in spaces throughout the theatre, dressed in period costume!

Enjoy the holiday decorations, and don’t miss the changes we’ve made to the Virginia’s model train set-up in our Mezzanine Lobby!

This is a fun way to kick-off the holiday season and a great way to warm-up before the Parade of Lights, all in downtown Champaign.  Parade Map.
