The restoration of the Gillioz Theatre was completed in October 2006, eighty years after the original opening. In its early years, the Gillioz was Springfield’s premier entertainment venue, hosting a number of movie premiers and vaudeville shows.
Both the lobby and auditorium have been restored to their original 1926 condition. With a seating capacity of 1130, 690 on Orchestra level, and 440 in the Balcony, The Gillioz offers Springfield a perfect sized venue for many events.
The Gillioz Theatre in conjunction with the Jim D. Morris Building serves a plethora of functions including Broadway productions, theatre, movies, religious gatherings, arts education, dining, rehearsals, school programs, banquets, receptions, concerts, film festivals, weddings, seminars/conventions, and television broadcasts.
