The Stanley with celebrate 90 years with a fundraising gala later this month.

The Stanley first opened its doors on September 10, 1928 with just under 3,000 seats. It was designed by famous architect Thomas Lamb - who diagrammed dozens of 'movie palaces' in the early 1900s in the US and Canada. Among his best known projects are Fox Theatre in San Francisco and Capitol Theatre in New York City; and other CNY  venues Proctor's Theatre in Schenectady and Syracuse's Landmark Theatre.

Notable features of The Stanley include its grand entry staircase - resembling the grand staircase on the Titanic - and its chandelier, the largest free hanging LED chandelier in the world. It weighs 7,000 pounds and stretches 35-feet in diameter. Its most recent renovation included expansion of the stage to accommodate larger shows.

The 90th Anniversary Gala is Friday night, October 26 beginning at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are 75$ and include food from several area restaurants and entertainment. Get tickets or more information. 

Jackie Romano and Marlo Giovanazzo joined the Keeler in the Morning Show this week to talk about the event:
