With a seating capacity of 1,028, the grand old theater has played host to such headliners as the Guy Lombardo Orchestra, Arlo Guthrie, Judy Collins, Jimmy Dorsey, Hank Williams Sr. and Mount Vernon's own Paul Lynde. In addition to nationally recognized artists, the Memorial Theater plays host to local events that touch the lives of the entire community.
