First opened in 1928, this elaborate structure was built as a Mastbaum theater and shares its name with one of the chain’s brothers. The eclectic theater boasts a wealth of ornaments, including cherubs, Indian faces, marble lions, and a star-studded ceiling. By virtue of its terra cotta exterior, its style has been dubbed “Mexican Baroque,” although that’s somewhat specific for this melange of influences. Following a multi-million dollar renovation, the Stanley now hosts touring musicals, ballet performances, orchestra concerts, and other events.
