Shea’s Performing Arts Center, a national historic site, was a lavish product of the first motion picture boom of the Roaring Twenties. The theater was designed in 1925 by famed architects C. W. & George Rapp and opened its doors in January 1926. With seating for over 3,700 guests, the theater was intended to resemble the opera houses and palaces of Europe of the 16th and 17th centuries. The theater boasts an eclectic mix of architectural styles including Spanish Baroque, French Baroque and Rococo.

Ninety years later, Shea’s remains one of the best-preserved big city movie theaters left of an exuberant era gone by. U&S Services has contributed to the rehabilitation and modernization of this important landmark by updating HVAC and temperature controls for the main theater.
