Seven Daysies Awards: Best performing arts venue, 2008

Seven Days needs your financial support!

Best performing arts venue 

Flynn Center for the Performing Arts

Flynn Center for the Performing Arts



The Flynn has come a long way since the early ’80s, when it was a decaying, X-rated movie palace on Burlington’s Main Street. Decades of detailed restoration have restored its Art Deco beauty. Careful planning has guided its expansion into a performing arts complex, including topnotch educational opportunities for kids and workshop space for artists-in-residence. And a succession of creative curators has made it a destination for the best music, dance, theater and performance arts acts in the country. Seeing a performance at the Flynn is every bit as dazzling as going to the theater in New York, Boston or Montréal — and you don’t have to dress up. No wonder the big stage broke the applause-meter with Seven Days readers, and the little stage — the FlynnSpace — came in second.
