The Apollo Theater Multimedia Walking Tour is a combination of Harlem sightseeing and a tour of the world famous Apollo Theater. The idea is to walk the streets of Harlem learning the overall history with a special emphasis on art and entertainment. After the walking tour, visit the world famous Apollo Theater for an interior tour of the building and a mock Amateur night at the end.
Your Apollo Theater Multimedia Walking Tour starts at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
The Harlem walking tour portion will feature pictures, video and sound presented at sights where history happened, special attention will be paid to music history and Harlem legends launched to stardom from the world famous Apollo Theater stage.
You will end with a back-stage tour of Apollo Theater where we will host our very own mock 'Amateur Night at the Apollo.' You will have the chance to go on the Apollo Theater stage and perform in the very spot where greats like Michael Jackson, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald and many others started their careers ' lets see if you have what it takes to be an Apollo star!
