New Theater in NYC

It’s not every day that New York City gets a new theater, so the mere opening of Midnight Theatre on September 21, a new 160-seat destination in the heart of Manhattan West, is reason enough to celebrate. Add to it the fact that the venue is also home to a bar, a top-notch restaurant and a cafe, and you’ve got yourself a new cultural must-visit. Expect a variety theater! Midnight Theatre will feature a first-of-its-kind, permanently installed 270-degree immersive projection system to digitally change the decor of the room. Its built-in animated digital scenery and real-time animated environments also react to music.  Brookfield Properties Manhattan West
