Could there really be a more Heights-esque live music venue? This 1930’s era cinema has seen just as many changes as the diverse neighborhood in which it resides. After a major fire in 1969, the building was converted into a collection of retail antique shops, then an art gallery and event space, and finally, one of the newest entertainment venues in the area. Shows range from dancing and rock ’n’ roll to classical and singer-songwriters, so the viewing etiquette may change by show. The venue also has a kitchen which is open before each show and until the headliner takes the stage, serving a rotating blackboard selection of bites like cheeseboards and hummus plates. To quench your thirst, head to the on-site, full bar stocking local beers, wines and a full list of spirits. To boot, all parking at The Heights Theater is free, with many spaces located along 19th, Ashland, and Rutland Streets.
