The Weinberg Center for the Arts (commonly Weinberg Center) is a venue located in Frederick, Maryland, USA that holds various showings of music, theatre, films and visual art. The theatre was built as the Tivoli Theatre by the Stanley-Crandall concern and opened on December 23, 1926. It was the premiere movie theatre of Frederick for nearly fifty years but, after considerable damage suffered in a 1976 flood, closed. The Weinberg family, which then owned the old movie palace, chose to present it to the city as a gift rather than attempt to keep it open as a movie house. The theatre has been maintained in the splendid style of 1926. The theatre's organ, a two-manual, eight-rank Wurlitzer, is the only original theatre organ installation in the state. The Weinberg Center holds several dozen events every year, and has an annual budget of over one million dollars.
