Located in Baltimore, Maryland, the Hippodrome at France-Merrick PAC was originally built in 1914 and functioned as a vaudeville house and movie theater. With its brick and terra cotta faade, the Hippodrome Theatre was a regal, unusual building at the time. After renovations in 2004, it was turned into a performing arts venue and is now part of the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center. Some performers that have graced its stage include Beach House, Anderson Cooper and Needtobreathe. You can get the best Hippodrome Theatre tickets right here at StubHub.
