The building that is now called The Westcott Theater was originally constructed as a movie theater in 1919. Although it changed ownership throughout the years, it remained as a cinema house until it was bought in 2007 and reimagined into a live music venue, opening its doors in 2008. Nestled in the historic Westcott neighborhood of Syracuse NY, The Westcott Theater has grown into the most prolific and the most diverse live music venue in Central New York. In 2019 The Westcott Theater was renovated to feature a line array front of house sound system, new lighting design capabilities and new stage monitoring functionality. In the winter of 2020 additional cosmetic ballroom upgrades were made to not only enhance the artist and patron experience in the context of a live concert but to also make the venue more adaptable to private events, from everything from large scale parties to corporate receptions.
