Marquee Theatre is a small-sized music venue in Tempe, Arizona. The theater sits on the north side of Tempe Town Lake near the Mill Avenue Bridge, at the intersection of Mill Avenue and Washington Street, the primary business and entertainment district in Tempe.
The Marquee originally opened in 1993 as "the Red River Opry" and catered for country music. New ownership took over in the early 2000s, changed the name and removed the seats. The theater features festival seating and the back of the house is approximately 80 feet from the stage. It is open to all ages and alcoholic beverages are served with proper ID. Due to the Arizona smoking laws, there is no smoking permitted inside but a large outdoor patio is provided. The theater is popular with the students of nearby Arizona State University and caters to the college-age demographic.
