The next era of arts & entertainment is just around the corner at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. New entertainment, education, dining and hospitality experiences will unfold as the Broward Center begins a bold transformation.

ACT 1 — Transforming the audience experience.

Au-Rene Theater Interior Renovation Complete
Club Level Grand Opening

When the curtain went up on the first act of the Broward Center’s ENCORE! capital expansion in October 2012, audiences noticed the renovations to the Au-Rene Theater, which included all new seats and a Club Level that redefines how people enjoy live theater.  What they didn't see is equally important – the infrastructure upgrades, including new sound, lighting and air conditioning systems, that have enhanced the Broward Center experience for all guests.

Guests will be able to stroll down the hillside, grab a bite in the New River Bistro, relax or dine with friends in a courtyard on the Wendt Terraces and enjoy an outdoor performance by the river.
