Perfectly situated between Dallas and Fort Worth, the City of Arlington, Texas, offers its inhabitants the best of all worlds, and ARLINGTON MUSIC HALL possesses some of the richest performing history in all of the Metroplex.
Built in 1949 and opening in 1950 as a movie theater, this beautiful facility was considered the “go to” place for entertainment (both live and on film!).
Opening night featured the movie “Seabiscuit” with Shirley Temple and Barry Fitzgerald that followed a memorable performance by a local band – The Flying Ranch Hands (aka The Light Crust Doughboys).
Burk Collins purchased the Hall in 2006 and implemented a series of major upgrades to the facility resulting in a total renovation costing $7 million. The stage size was doubled and the seating capacity was increased to nearly 1,056 by the time the Hall re-opened in November 2010 with Ray Price serving as the headliner.
A remnant of the original curtain is on display inside and marquee on the front of the building is also the original!
Willie Nelson, The Platters, Loretta Lynn, Eddie Money, Rick Springfield, Clint Black, KANSAS and Wynonna Judd have all graced the stage of this historic venue. In fact, Leann Rimes got her start as a child at ARLINGTON MUSIC HALL!
Today, ARLINGTON MUSIC HALL is the perfect host for a wide range of experiences for all ages – Country, Pop, Rock, Classical, Comedy and Musical Theatre. We’re also the home to SYMPHONY ARLINGTON, performing a series of monthly concerts throughout its annual season.
Constantly searching for both classic artists and rising stars. ARLINGTON MUSIC HALL is quickly becoming one of the most sought out entertainment venues in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex.
