About Newmark Theatre
Located inside the stunning Antoinette Hatfield Hall, which is now to be renamed The New Theatre Building, are three different venues: the Newmark Theatre with 880 seats, the Dolores Winningstad Theatre with 292 seats, and Brunish Hall at 200 seats. With all this under one roof, one would think that there would be noise crossover or at the very least patron congestion issues. Such is not the case. Audience members are completely oblivious to any other theater than the one they are attending.
The Newmark Theatre was designed to emulate the Edwardian-style theaters of Europe and even though it is the largest of the theaters at Hatfield Hall, no seat in the theater is farther than 65 feet from the stage.
The spacious lobby features a five-story rotunda above which is an art-glass “Spectral Light Dome” skylight. Overlooking the lobby are three levels of balconies that are designed like box seats. It’s fun to grab a martini and relax in one of these box seats while people-watching theatergoers in the lobby below. A public space, the lobby is open to all during the day.
The building is also home to the ArtBar & Bistro, serving Northwest cuisine, appetizers, and pre-performance cocktails.
