The National Theatre
Richmond, Virginia


This historic structure located in the Broad Street Corridor of downtown Richmond was originally constructed in the 1920’s as a movie house. The building was abandoned in 1983 and sat vacant. In 2002 the building was listed in the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. In 2006 Dunlap & Partners became part of the team challenged with designing the adaptive reuse of the National as a live entertainment venue.
