On this members-only Untapped  New York Insiders tour, explore the stunning United Palace Theater which celebrates its 90th Anniversary this year! The 3,400-seat entertainment palace was originally built as one of the five Loew’s Wonder theaters in the New York City metro area.  Originally known as the Loew’s 175th Street Theatre, the United Palace has long served as a cultural hotspot for residents of the north Manhattan community. Designed by architect Thomas Lamb (Cort Theatre, the former Ziegfeld Theatre) and styled by Harold Rambausch (Waldorf Astoria, Radio City Music Hall), the landmarked theater looks almost identical to its original form thanks to various restoration projects throughout the years. Today, the United Palace is a transformational venue that fuses culture, spirituality and entertainment.
