Apollo Theater: 85th Anniversary



Apollo at 85

Since introducing the first Amateur Night contests in 1934, the Apollo Theater has served as a testing ground for new artists working across a variety of art forms and has ushered in the emergence of many new musical genres—including jazz, swing, bebop, R&B, gospel, blues, soul, and hip-hop. With programming that includes new theatrical works, dance, and musical performances, the Apollo’s forward-looking artistic vision continues to build on this legacy.

Check out this film shot and directed by SandenWolff director Noah Therrien to see why the Apollo continues to be the Soul of American Culture.
