The Altamont Theatre is a multi use building located in downtown Asheville, North Carolina - less than a mile from our Bed and Breakfast.
Stand up comedy, an eclectic mix of musical performers, and theater can all be found in this great place. Visit their web site for a detailed list of upcoming performances by local and nationally known artists. Sunday afternoon jazz events have become a standard.
The main floor houses a state of the art black-box theater seating approximately 120 people. It can be used for a variety of performances and special events. The lower level features a lobby with gallery space for art work, bar, restrooms, and event support spaces including dressing rooms and a green room.
The recently renovated landmark building housing the Altamont, built in 1895, qualifies for historic preservation recognition as well as Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
It is also home to the Altamont Theatre Company, Asheville's professional musical theatre and conservatory which relies on community support for its projected growth to provide New York City quality productions.
The Altamont is just one more reason to plan an Asheville, North Carolina vacation.
