Dance to ancient Native American rhythms, sip mint juleps on the veranda of an antebellum mansion, hear the stories of escape from slavery, get your groove on in an authentic music mecca or stroll down avenues lined with architectural jewels. Macon’s wealth of history, culture and heritage can transport you from the days when Native Americans claimed this land “where man first sat down” to the city’s 1800s settlement and growth, through the civil war, to African American Contributions and influence and into the music of some true American Icons. - See more at: http://www.maconga.org/about/culture-and-heritage/#sthash.vcMPAt01.dpuf

Enjoy new movies, classic films and live entertainment from comfortable seating while feasting on hot pizza, super subs and cold beer at the beautifully restored Cox Capitol Theatre.  A new high definition surround sound system transforms the historic stage into an incredible concert venue for a variety of live music from rock bands to first-class musical tours.

The historic Capitol Theatre first opened its doors in downtown Macon in 1916 and introduced fascinated audiences to the drama and glamour of the silver screen.  From silent movies to talkies, the theatre had a successful run and provided quality entertainment for 60 years before closing its doors in 1976.  After $1.2 Million of restoration work, this classic venue reopened its doors in 2006.

Douglas Theatre

Douglass Theatre

 

Otis Redding was discovered here. Ma Rainey, Cab Calloway, Little Richard and many others also performed in this theater during its run from 1921 to the '70s. It stood silent for 20 years until the City of Macon restored and reopened it in January 1997, as a state-of-the-art film, performance and meeting venue. Now, it pays tribute to African Americans' influence on film and theater. Visitors can experience its original opulence while watching 3-D films. In addition, live musical and theatrical performances occur at night, while the adjoining annex offers function space and a complete catering kitchen for other functions.

The Allman Brothers Band Museum

In January 1970, The Big House became the place where members of the band, their roadies, friends and families lived until 1973. It was the focal point of gathering in those early years when the magic, that is the Allman Brothers Band, was just taking shape and radiating from this sleepy Southern town. The Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House guarantees that the dreams, music and legacy created so long ago by the band will live on!
