Create an itinerary including Rylander Theatre
The Rylander Theatre was built in 1921 by American businessman Walter Rylander. It hosted the finest live entertainment and motion pictures before closing in 1951. Designed by C.K. Howell of New York, the Rylander was a visiual feast of ornate plaster work, beautiful stencil patterns, and painted murals. Closed for more than 40 years, and then restored and reopened in October 1999, the Rylander is nothing less than stunning and has once again reclaimed its titles as "The Finest Playhouse South of Atlanta."

The Mission Statement of the Rylander:

The mission of the Rylander Theater is to provide the community and area visitors a theatre and meeting hall for dramatic and musical stage performances, motion pictures, and lectures, with its unique architecture, artistic legacy and social history to be interpreted through tours and other educational presentations.

  • The Rylander hosted The American Spiritual Ensemble on February 3, 2022. It was a phenomenal performance. I look forward to returning to the Rylander for more performances.
