Historic Dixon Theatre

114 South Galena Avenue (Route 26)
Dixon, IL 61021

The Theatre is currently a rental facility that provides a very unique, elegant facility for organizations and individuals to hold many different types of events at user-friendly prices.  The Historic Dixon Theatre today, has a large stage (even offering 2 stage extensions, 1 which allows the orchestra pit to be covered, the other is smaller and centered in front of the stage to add 2 additional entrances centerstage), sunken orchestra pit in front of the stage, the gorgeous domed ceiling which creates the rarest, most phenomenal natural acoustics one will most likely experience, 5 dressing rooms and 2 restrooms in the basement below the stage, as well as several drop bars available in the fly area for use.  There are 2 restrooms on the Mezzanine level, 2 main floor store fronts on either side of the front lobby area of the theatre that were converted to expand the original restrooms, which now have allowed us to offer 7 women's and 2 men's stalls, instead of the 1 stall in each prior to this renovation.  After undergoing such extensive renovation over the last 20+ yrs,  and adding all of these fantastic amenities to this building, it is safe to say that Historic Dixon Theatre now offers you everything today's modern theatre can, while still offering you that "old theatre feel".
