View the MSU Riley Center schedule or contact our hotel for a list of upcoming acts and appearances.
Experience premier entertainment at the MSU Riley Center for Education and Performing Arts, just three miles from Hilton Garden Inn Meridian. This historic opera house-turned-theater is nestled in arts-centric downtown Meridian, MS and draws 60,000 visitors a year.
Be part of the story of this vibrant venue when you stay at our Meridian, MS hotel. Make a night memorable with a ballet or classical performance or a concert by popular pop, blues and country acts. Enjoy dinner before the show with your friends or tour group at our on-site restaurant, The Garden Grille & Bar®, before boarding your bus downtown. Unwind after the night out in a spacious guest room with thoughtful amenities such as a 37-inch HDTV, complimentary WiFi and a Garden Sleep System® bed. A cooked-to-order breakfast is an energizing start to the morning.
The theater, built in the late 1800s, has hosted vaudeville shows, early silent movies and popular traveling shows. Contemporary movie theaters spurred its closure in 1927, but a restoration project in 2003–2006 reawakened its original trim, woodwork and delicate decor. Today, the theater is owned and operated by Mississippi State University and boasts musical acts, theater performances, conferences, educational workshops and special events.
