Apollo Theater

The Apollo Theater is also a strong force in the Harlem community, hosting a number of special events, including health fairs, daily Apollo Historical Tours, community arts initiatives, and talent showcase competitions for seniors and for children.

Drawing 1.3 million visitors annually, Harlem is Manhattan's third most popular tourist destination, and the Apollo remains Harlem's top attraction.

Former Manhattan Borough President and attorney Percy Sutton purchased the Apollo Theater in 1981 and launched a spirited campaign which revived interest in the theater. In 1983, the Apollo Theater received national, state and city landmark status and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
It celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 1985 with a grand reopening gala and nationally broadcast television special Motown Salutes the Apollo.

The historic theater is now managed by The Apollo Theater Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 1992.
