The Skyway Theatre

711 Hennepin Ave., 2nd floor Minneapolis, MN 55403 | Minneapolis (Downtown) | 612-333-6100

Location Description:

Back in the '70s, this was downtown Minneapolis's main venue to catch the latest blockbuster movie. Now it's the center of a four-story club complex, retrofitting the old multiplex into a dance club and live music space with the kind of booming sound and open sightlines that concert spaces demand.
