Chevalier Theater is a historic landmark located in Medford, Massachusetts. A memorial to a hero and cultural icon, it is a working theater that presents performing arts and film, and is available to rent. The spacious interior features 1,800 seats - 1,100 on the floor and 700 in the grand curved balcony. The Chevalier is the sixth largest theatre in the Metropolitan Boston area.

The Theatre covers 25,000 sq. feet and is five stories high. It has two elevators (one for the stage and one for the house) and most areas are handicapped accessible. The curvature of the theater gives the house a tremendous feeling of openness and spaciousness. It also enhances the sound in the house, as there are few square corners or angles to create “standing waves”. This brilliant design makes a theatre that is exceptional, both visually and aurally.
