Robin­son Center

Robinson Center 1

Little Rock’s historic Robinson Center first opened its doors in 1939. Over the years Robinson Center has hosted many famous performers including Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong, Bill Cosby, Ray Charles, Nat King Cole and many others. The Center originally features a 2,600 seat proscenium theater with one balcony, an exhibition hall, offices and meeting rooms. The renovation seat count is about 2,214. The theatre was reconfigured to create a more intimate audience experience, stage, backstage and lobby areas were improved and expanded, and new ballroom over looking the Arkansas River was added. Robinson Center reopened in 2017.
