The Calvin Theatre was once the largest movie theater in Northampton, Massachusetts, and was the home of first run films for almost 70 years. It was designed by the firm of Mowll and Rand. It opened on April 17, 1924. In the 1940s, it was part of Western Massachusetts Theatres.
Due to the arrival of the megapixels in the nearby theatre Headley, Calvin had to suffer a lot, as it struggled to survive second rate film bookings and large overhead. In 1994, Calvin put up a board stating that it has been closed temporarily.
However, Calvin was reborn as a live performance space in the late 1990s, when its potential was seen and it had been bought and renovated. The 1998 refurbishment work was supervised by Northampton architect Thomas Douglas. The renovations retained the original 1924 design, making Northampton's largest concert venue a historic site.
Recently, this magnificent venue, Calvin Theatre, has hosted a concert by the band Killer, which has been reported to be entertaining and compelling visually and musically as well.
The upcoming events taking place here, includes a concert by Disco Biscuits in the month of January. Next on the list is the famous Pink Floyd, in the event named, The Pink Floyd Experience.
