In Jersey City
White Eagle Hall is a newly restored and renovated historic theater located in the thriving nightlife scene of Downtown Jersey City, New Jersey. White Eagle Hall presents live music, theatre, comedy, dance, film, family shows as well as other performances while serving food and drinks. Also, White Eagle Hall is a warm and intimate event space perfect for weddings, receptions, private parties, fundraisers, corporate meetings and other functions.
The White Eagle Hall opened in 1910, constructed by polish immigrants and craftsmen under the leadership of Father Peter Boleslaus Kwiatkowski, who was driven from his native Poland by Russian occupiers just before the turn of the 20th century. During the depression, but before his death in 1934, Kwiatkowski transferred the ownership of White Eagle Hall to St. Anthony’s. The parish managed the venue throughout the 20th century – in addition to church-related and other community activities. By preserving the historical integrity of the building while enhancing the audience experience with the latest in sound & lighting technology as well as amenities White Eagle Hall is a theater, performance, concert and event venue for the 21st century.
Embedded in the White Eagle Hall ceiling are two spectacular, hand-crafted stain-glass skylights – one commemorating Frédéric Chopin, the classical music composer, and the other Marcella Sembrich, an internationally renowned opera star – she sang 11 seasons with New York Metropolitan Opera.
