Event Details

Named after the sixteenth-century Danish castle in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the Elsinore Theater opened for silent films and vaudeville shows on May 28, 1926. It was heralded as the “largest and most lavish theater between Portland and San Francisco.”
In the decades since attorney and art connoisseur George B. Guthrie constructed the building at High and State Streets, the Elsinore has been an integral part of the city’s cultural scene. Performers have included John Philip Sousa, Clark Gable, Jack Benny, Bonnie Raitt, Gregory Peck, Bernadette Peters, James Earl Jones, and Itzak Perlman.
The Elsinore’s Mighty Wurlitzer is the result of Salem organ buffs Clayton and Rick Parks wanting to find the perfect home for their residence theatre pipe organ.
