Modern Theatre

The Modern Theatre at Suffolk University is a 185-seat theatre located at 525 Washington Street in Boston’s Theatre District.

Suffolk University’s Modern Theatre programming advances the educational experience for our students; engages the community through cultural, social, and civic programming; promotes excellence and innovation in the arts; and entertains all who pass through our open doors. Our programming is intimate in scale, thoughtful in content, and contemporary in approach.

The Modern Theatre is used for events which provide an educational benefit for Suffolk University students. A guest (non-Suffolk organization) program hosted in the theatre must be sponsored by and planned with a Suffolk University academic department or administrative office. The Modern Theatre is not available for religious services, benefits and political rallies.
