Dillingham Center

With its majestic fountains and a spectacular view of Cayuga Lake, Dillingham Center is one of Ithaca's most distinctive structures. Six main stage theater productions are mounted here each year, ranging from Shakespearean classics to Broadway blockbusters.

Its performance spaces are varied and flexible. Hoerner Theatre is a 535-seat proscenium house. The audience area is approximately 68 feet deep by 58 feet wide, and seating is continental in form. Clark Theatre is a 220 flexible seat house having approximately 500 square feet of playing area when used in the full round. Other configurations that can be achieved are end stage, three-quarter thrust, and half round.

Downstairs dance studios accommodate ballet, jazz, tap, and modern dance classes.

The fireworks were great! Granted they started a little late but the even overall was terrific! There were fireworks I've never even seen before such as smiley faces and hearts. The whistlers were by far in my opinion the best and added a touch of magic to the night as if being in a Harry Potter film.
