New Daisy Theatre
Backstory and Context
The historic New Daisy Theatre, offspring of the Old Daisy Theatre, is a prominent venue for concerts and other entertainment.
The “New Daisy” was constructed and opened in 1937. Despite it’s name it is newer than its predecessor that is located across the street and was built in 1913. The New Daisy is quite a but larger than its predecessor. Its seating capacity is at about 1,110 people, which is about twice as much as the Old Daisy theatre. It has played host to numerous concerts and even boxing matches. It was originally built as a movie theatre but by the 1970s it became primarily a concert venue.
The theatre has been around for over 77 years and has recently undergone extensive renovations to spruce up the inside and outside of the venue. The new owners want to make the New Daisy more of a prominent concert and event venue to compete with other places in the area.
