Best under-the-radar theater

Winner: The Cabot Theater

When it opened in 1920, this theater was home to silent movies and vaudeville performances. Back then, it rivaled other huge, elaborately decorated venues in New York City. Today, it’s a live performance space and cinema, and remains one of 250 movie palaces out of about 20,000 built in the 1920s. Go for the show, but appreciate the original and charming architecture: The Cabot has preserved the ceiling’s golden dome, a full balcony, and ornamental art and frescoes. –Bryanna Cappadona
