Marquee Theatre is a music venue located in Tempe, AZ, hosting multiple genres of musicians, comedians, and live performances. The Marquee originally opened in 1993 as "the Red River Opry" and catered for country music. New ownership took over in the early 2000s, changed the name and removed the seats. The theater now features festival seating and the back of the house is approximately 80 feet from the stage. This premier Phoenix venue is currently looking for acts to book this summer and early fall.

The Opportunity

Marquee Theatre is a large music venue in Tempe, Arizona. The theater sits on the north side of Tempe Town Lake near the Mill Avenue Bridge, at the intersection of Mill Avenue and Washington Street, the primary business and entertainment district in Tempe. The auditorium style venue is located 1 mile north of Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ at the corner of Mill Ave and Washington Street just north of Tempe Town Lake. For years, this has been the primary destination for Phoenicians to come to see their favorite touring band.
