“Enhancing Frederick's cultural life”

The Weinberg Center is a showcase for performing arts in Frederick that enhances our area's cultural life. Frederick's historic 1926 movie palace is home to year-round quality entertainment: professional music, dance, and theater; classic movies and family shows. On December 23, 1926, the Tivoli, opened its doors for the first time. Built at a cost of more than $350,000, the theater was, at the time, the second largest structure ever built in Frederick. Designed to comfortably seat 1,500 people, the Tivoli not only had a sixteen-foot movie screen, but it could also accommodate live performances with an orchestra pit, a large stage, 50 sets of pulleys for scenery, and a full complement of dressing rooms. Unlike the area theaters of the day, which catered to lovers of low-budget films, the Tivoli maintained an atmosphere of refinement. Ushers wore uniforms with gold-buttoned jackets, and the managers dressed in tuxedos. Surrounded by crystal chandeliers, marble and silk wall coverings and leather seats, an opening-night sell-out crowd watched a selection of short features and silent films.

The Weinburg is a beautiful theatre that hosts a great variety of events throughout the year. Their calendar is always full and there is generally something for almost every taste.

It is located at the center of downtown Frederick and is conveniently close to many delicious places to dine and other downtown activities.

The venue itself is beautiful and historic. Although they do not allow food and drink in the theatre itself, they do have a bar in the lobby that is well stocked.
