About the Gillioz Theatre
Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Springfield! The restoration of the Gillioz Theatre was completed in October 2006, eighty years after the original opening. In its early years, the Gillioz was Springfield’s premier entertainment venue, hosting a number of movie premiers and vaudeville shows. Both the lobby and auditorium have been restored to their original 1926 condition.
With a seating capacity of 1130, 690 on Orchestra level, and 440 in the Balcony, The Gillioz offers Springfield a perfect sized venue for many events.
