About The Beverly Theater The brainchild of namesake philanthropist Beverly Rogers, the two-story, 14,306 square-foot film house and performance theater features three distinct areas: the main theater, Segue jazz terrace, and courtyard, each designed with purpose and intention. Additionally, The Beverly Theater has an on-site box office, retail/concession space, and a fully loaded green room (affectionately named The Teddy). The main theater features raked seating of nearly 150 seats resting on a retractable platform that can allow for expanded standing room capacity and convert the venue into a multi-purpose black box theater with the push of a button. Multiple lighting plots allow the theater to be used in a variety of different ways and can be staged in multiple directions. With an extraordinary emphasis on the film-watching experience, the 360-square-foot screen is coupled with a motorized cinema masking system and has been designed to maximize viewing angles from every seat in the house. Located on 6th Street and Bonneville in Downtown Las Vegas, The Beverly Theater is a not-for-profit venue and further underscores The Rogers Foundation’s ongoing commitment to supporting the arts.
