General Conclave

Each year, over 100 people join THS for its Conclave Theatre Tour. Hosted in a different geographic location each year, our architectural tour showcases a region’s theatres and gives our attendees unprecedented access to the buildings. Lasting four to five days, it includes visits to 15-25 theatres including neighborhood venues and movie palaces as well as presentations from each building’s historian.

During the week, attendees also enjoy:

  • A Welcome Reception and Silent Auction
  • The Annual THS Awards Ceremony
  • The Annual Membership Meeting

To find out more about the 2015 Conclave Theatre Tour including when registration opens, sign up for our e-newsletter.
