NEW: Worcester’s Hanover Theatre Ranked Among World’s Best

Friday, April 13, 2012

 

Pollstar ranked The Hanover Theatre  ranked 33 out of the top 50 theaters in the world.

Theater representative Lisa Condit offered the news in a weekly update, offering a huge thanks to customers and staff that have made the one-time movie theater a top-notch entertainment destination for folks in and around Worcester.

“I am very excited to announce Pollstar ranked The Hanover Theatre number 33 out of the Top 50 Theatre Venues Worldwide,” Condit wrote. “A big thank you to everyone on our board, staff, volunteers and the thousands of supporters like you throughout Worcester County who help make our success possible.”

Pollstar is an online concert ticket and entertainment source.

Hanover Theatre is the latest, and arguably one of the most successful incarnations of the building originally known as the Franklin Square Theater, which was built in 1904. It later became known as the Grand Theater. Major additions and changes were made to the building in 1925. In 1967, it was converted into Showcase Cinemas owned by National Amusements Inc. The movie theater was successful for years, before closing in late 1990s.
