The Oldest Continuously Operating Theatre in America

This historic theater originally opened to the public in 1852. Over the years, the Fulton Opera House entertained audiences with many of the great performers of American stage, including the Barrymore family, Sarah Bernhardt, W. C. Fields, Al Jolson, Mark Twain,  Helen Hayes, Marcel Marceau, and many more.

Today the 160+ year old Fulton Theatre is still an entertainment showcase in Lancaster. The Fulton Theatre is thought to be the oldest continuously operating theater in America and has been named a National Historic Landmark.

The Fulton Opera House Foundation incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1963. In the 1990’s, the historic theatre underwent a $9.5 million renovation.

The Fulton annually serves over 130,000 guests with performances for all ages.  The theater also serves as home of the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra.
