A onetime burlesque theater, the Trocadero Theatre in Chinatown is now a favorite spot for live music, special events and weekly movie screenings.

Hosting acts both large and small, the venue affectionately known as The Troc is a mainstay for live music in Philadelphia. The main room offers space for up to 1,200 with an open floor and seated balcony area.

A venue within a venue, The Balcony hosts smaller shows and weekly movie nights for up to 250 people.

Opened in 1870, The Troc is the only 19th century Victorian theater still in operation in the country and listed on the U.S. Register of Historic Places.
