Proctor's Theatre Description
Proctor's Theatre (officially stylized as Proctors since 2007; however, the marquee retains the apostrophe) is a former vaudeville house located in Schenectady, New York, United States. Many famous artists have performed there, notably Mariah Carey (whose 1993 top-rated Thanksgiving special was taped there), Britney Spears, Hal Holbrook, Ted Wiles, and George Burns, as well as many others. It has one of the largest movie screens in the Northeast.
The theatre was opened on December 27, 1926. It was designed by architect Thomas Lamb. Four years later it hosted the first public demonstration of television. In 1979 the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places, shortly before being renovated after a long period of decline and neglect. A renovation completed in 2007 added two theatres to the complex, providing a variety of performance spaces.

Linda reviewed: The Moody Blues @ Proctor's Theatre
Last I saw this group they were absolutely terrific. I only wish they would come around more often. There are so many people who grew up with this wonderful sound and we will never forget any of the songs. I just love you guys your are still terrific and when I get the chance to see you on TV I record it and watch over and over. I am 58 years old and would follow you guys anywhere if I only could afford to..... Oldie but goodie groupie.. Peace!
