Description

Originally opened as a vaudeville theater in 1905, the Rex Theater has been a fixture on Pittsburgh's Southside for over a century. Over the last decade, the Rex has found a place as a live concert venue with full service bar. The venue can host standing room only events(587 capacity), fully seated events(300 capacity), or a mix of both seated and standing events . The venue is currently used as a live concert venue, but also hosts a variety of free movie nights, independent film screenings, plays, comedy shows, burlesque and belly dance shows, dance parties, private events, weddings and wedding receptions, and private parties. The venue is available to rent including full concert sound and lighting systems, seating for up to 300, box office staff, security staff, highly trained sound engineers and lighting designers, production managers, and event coordinators. To obtain a rental quote or to inquire about venue availability, please contact our talent buyer at scott@rextheater.com PARKING There is on street parking available on Carson Street and the side streets to the north (towards the river), as well as public parking lots at the corner of 18th Street and Carson, 18th Street and Sidney, and on Carson Street between 19th and 20th Streets. On Fridays and Saturday, there is valet parking available on 16th Street because of how many people come to the South Side on those two nights.
