Facts

  • Opening night, dubbed "The Broadway Event," was broadcasted live on KGW-Channel 8, and featured artists from Seattle, a soul band, an artist Philippe Petit, and 58-dancers who performed inside the glass-enclosed stairwells of the building.
  • In December 2006, the The Newmark Theatre was renamed to Antoinette Hatfield Hall.
  • The 99-year lease of the property was granted by the First Congregational Church.
  • The site prior to its current look was used as a parking lot.
  • One of the grantor’s imposed conditions was that sunlight had to fall on the northern stained glass; this was possible by cutting away the back of the Newmark Thratre.
  • Three architecture firms were chosen to collaboratively design and renovate both the New Theatre Building and the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.
  • The building officially opened on August 28, 1987.
  • The Performing Arts Center and Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall were both bought by the city after a $19 million bond measure passed in the early 1980’s.
  • The building features three separate theaters; the Newmark Theatre (formerly the Intermediate Theatre), Dolores Winningstad Theatre, and Brunish Hall.
  • A committee was appointed in 1980 by Mayor Connie McCready after an assembled task force by the city concluded Portland needed a four-theatre complex with differing stage sizes.
  • The Newmark Theatre interior is designed in an Edwardian style, while the Dolores Winningstad Theatre is in an Elizabethan theatre style.
