A non-profit, multi-disciplinary arts organization housing New York State's oldest surviving theater. Hudson Hall is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization incorporated in 1993. Its mission is to inspire and promote the arts and to play a pivotal role in the cultural and economic advancement of the city and the region. Originally built in 1855 as City Hall, Hudson Hall is considered to be one of the city’s most important community assets and a prominent historic building in the heart of Hudson, New York (pop. 6,700), 100 miles north of New York City and the county seat of rural Columbia County.

The Hudson Opera House offers a year-round schedule of arts and cultural programming in the 1855 former Hudson City Hall which contains New York State's oldest surviving theatre. Since opening the first restored room in December of 1997, five rooms on the first floor have been rehabilitated, and we have presented thousands of cultural and educational programs, more than 850 in the last year alone. The Hudson Opera House provides free or low-cost cultural offerings every week of the year. Ongoing programs include concerts, readings, lectures, exhibitions, theatre and dance presentations, after-school programs, workshops, classes, and community arts events like the annual Winter Walk on Warren Street.

The Hudson Opera House is one of the oldest surviving theatres in America.Gallery Hours are Monday through Sunday, Noon to 5 pm. Building tours (offered anytime during open hours), readings and all exhibitions are always free of charge.
