Event Center

We have two modern and unique event rooms accommodating groups from 40-250.   Our catering kitchen supports these function rooms with easy access to and from the theatre’s upper lobby.

Historic Lobby

The Historic Lobby offers stunning historic chandeliers, antique mirrors, our grand staircase and a beautifully crafted granite bar.  This space easily accommodates up to 150 guests.

The Grand Promenade

The promenade overlooks the historic lobby and is a larger function space with accents reminiscent of the 1920s.  With high ceilings and large chandeliers, the promenade provides elegant grandeur for any occasion.  Appropriate for seated functions with up to 200 or receptions with up to 300 guests.

Franklin Square Salon

The Historic Franklin Square Salon is the only area of the building which remains from 1904.  This charming room is typically only available to our VIPs before a show, but is now available for rental at other times.  The room is fully furnished with a bar, two small sofas, coffee tables, and additional period-inspired seating.  The Franklin Square Salon also features an alluring fireplace covered in the original 1904 green tiles and a large window securing the only remaining piece of stained glass from 1904.  Although small, this space is perfect for a private meeting, intimate party or even a holiday dinner with friends and family!

The Hanover Theatre Stage

The stage is our most creative space with the best view of the theatre.  Let our 17 crystal chandeliers,  including our famous seven-foot grand chandelier, provide the light for your event on center stage.  The stage is appropriate for groups of up to 300.  The theatre seats approximately 2,300 people in the audience, which is perfect for large corporate presentations and trade shows.
