Owned and operated by the Champaign Park District since 2000, the Virginia Theatre is an historic performing arts center and movie palace that hosts concerts, stage plays, dance, spoken word, children’s events, films, comedy, private parties, corporate events, the Roger Ebert’s Film Festival, meetings and more. Since 1921, the 1463-seat Virginia has been a Champaign-Urbana landmark, offering entertainment first as a vaudeville house, legitimate theatre, and movie house. Now fully restored, the Virginia is ideally positioned to resume its role as vibrant community center, active performance space, and bustling cinema!
