Local residents eager to check out The Fillmore Silver Spring can now get a sneak peek inside the venue. The official Preview Center, located on Ellsworth Drive in Downtown Silver Spring, opened July 14 and educates visitors on the historical legacy of The Fillmore, the construction of The Fillmore Silver Spring project and the amenities that guests can expect at the new venue.
“We wanted to give the community an opportunity to learn about The Fillmore history and about our local venue,” said Stephanie Steele, General Manager of The Fillmore Silver Spring. “We’re so excited to be a part of the community here, and the Preview Center not only provides a location to educate but also gives us a chance to meet and talk to local residents.”
Visitors to the Preview Center will have the chance to view literature about the original venues in San Francisco, learn about Fillmore founder Bill Graham, view time-lapse photos of construction and talk to The Fillmore Silver Spring team about all the offerings that will be available at the venue; concerts, special events, community opportunities, and enhanced VIP services.
The Fillmore Silver Spring Preview Center opened at 921 Ellsworth Drive on July 14 at Noon and will remain open until The Fillmore Silver Spring opens mid September. The Preview Center will have the same operating hours as Art Spring and will be open Tuesday through Sunday.
As part of House of Blues Entertainment, The Fillmore Silver Spring’s parent company Live Nation will manage the live music concert bookings and plans to book over 150 shows a year at the new venue.
The Fillmore Silver Spring will be the first venue with its historical namesake to be developed from the ground up. The 23,000 square foot, 2000 capacity music venue will offer leading industry technology in audio, lighting and video as well as share fiber-optic connectivity to American Film Institute’s Silver Theatre located across the street.
