For audiophiles who simply must hear every bass line in pristine form, there's no place better than this 1902 theater, designed by A. J. Manning and patterned after the Ford Theater in Washington, DC. The Irvington Town Hall Theater hosts concerts, plays, dance performances, and even a yearly spelling bee. Past performers here include the Turtles, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and the New Christy Minstrels.

Best New Film Series (2010)
“Best Of” Film Series
How often have we proclaimed our woe over the fact that our county doesn’t have a single second-run theater? The Irvington Town Hall Theater and RiverArts have come up with something even better. Their “Best Of” film series not only gives you the discount afforded by other second-run theaters (just seven bucks a ticket), but the movies they show are pretty fantastic—indie, foreign, and documentary films like An Education, The Messenger, Fish Tank, The Last Station, and The White Ribbon. Opera buffs can also enjoy two filmed operas per month (often thematically linked), which are preceded by a pre-opera lecture.
