 What began as a Vaudeville theatre in 1926 is now the Capital Region’s destination for major Broadway national tours, cutting-edge film festivals, special events and everything in between. As the premier performing arts facility in New York State’s Capital Region, Proctors presents the very best in entertainment year-round. From concerts and Broadway shows on the beautiful historic Mainstage to live opera and ballet broadcasts in the GE Theatre, there is always something wonderful and exciting happening at Proctors.

Remember Saturday mornings? Kids today may not realize the significance of the Saturday morning ritual, but once upon a time, we had to wait a whole week to get our cartoon fix, and when we got it, we tended to binge. In that gleefully gluttonous spirit, curator Kier-La Janisse presents a 3-hour trip down memory lane with a tribute to the eye-popping, brain-addling Saturday morning cartoons of yore, complete with a smorgasbord of delicious sugary cereals (and yes, we have soy too!)! You'll see both faves and obscurities spanning the 60s through the 80s, all punctuated with vintage commercials and PSAs! The lineup is always a secret, but there will be sci-fi, monsters, crime-solving, rock bands and general tomfoolery, so get ready for a sugar rush and an explosion of nostalgia all wrapped up in one candy-coated package.
