About The Greenwich Odeum
The Greenwich Odeum is a small theater that first opened its doors in 1926. Located on Main Street in historic downtown East Greenwich, the 410-seat theater has welcomed artists such as Southside Johnny + the Asbury Jukes, Colin Hay and Todd Rundgren, just to name a few. After a recent restoration, the venue has enjoyed a revitalization that has initiated a lot of excitement, and will only continue as phase 2 of the improvements begin in the Summer of 2017.
