CLEVELAND MASONIC TEMPLE HISTORY
Located in downtown Cleveland at 3615 Euclid Ave., the Cleveland Masonic Temple is just east of Playhouse Square and near the Cleveland State University Campus. Built in 1921 and originally home to the Cleveland Orchestra, the venue has been host to various performing arts productions and live music events over the years, including performances by MGMT, Bastille, Fitz and the Tantrums, The 1975, Pixies, Kirk Franklin, Joe Rogan, Ghost, Leon Bridges, and Sturgill Simpson.
Acquired by Beaty Capital Group, Inc. in 2017 through its TempleLive brand, the Cleveland Masonic Temple has undergone a revitalization and is now open to the public. The iconic 7-story building, which contains approximately 102,000 square feet, was designed in the Romanesque Revival style by the prominent Cleveland architecture firm of Hubbell and Benes. The building’s exterior is made of orange-red brick with a sandstone façade, and its interior is divided into the 1918 Auditorium, the 1920 Grand Foyer, and the 1920 Masonic Lodges/Tower. The Auditorium, which can seat up to 2,500 people, features a proscenium stage, balcony boxes, and a Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ.
The Cleveland Masonic Temple is available for events and offers several different event spaces at an affordable cost. With its rich history and unique architectural features, the venue is a unique and memorable location for any function.
