Union County Arts Center
Union County

1601 Irving Street, Rahway NJ

With its prime location in Union County, the Union County Arts Center is a landmark theatre for all varieties of performing arts. With 1300 seats it is also one of the largest theatres in Union County.

The original Rahway Theatre opened in 1928 with a gala benefit film and stag show that became the city's social event of the year. A magnificent $20,000 Wurlitzer pip organ stole the show from the now almost forgotten opening artist - Chet Kingsbury, the house organist. The theatre, built for both movies and vaudeville, included a full orchestra pit, spectacular chandelier, sitting room, and nursery for children of patrons. Despite struggling during the Depression, and the era of sound movies, the theatre survived well into the 1960s before finally surcumbing to the tide of change.

In 1984, Rahway Landmarks bought and restored the building, and it now operates as a fully functioning arts center, a living landmark and home to thriving arts community. This theater strives to have a diverse event schedule each season, with both modern and classic musicians as well as theater productions.
