Richmond City, as opposed to Richmond County, is the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia. It is an independent city not belonging to any county but is instead the center of the Richmond metropolitan area. Richmond City has a rich historical background, being one of the capital villages of the Powhatan Confederacy, and one of the key places that started the American Revolution after Patrick Henry gave his “Liberty or Death” speech at the St. John’s Church. The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom by Thomas Jefferson was passed in the city of Richmond, now memorialized by the First Freedom Center. It was also the capital of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. Because of all the historic places in Richmond, tourism has become an important contributor to its economy. The National Theatre, more commonly known as The National, is one of Richmond’s historic buildings. It was built in 1923 and is now the only one remaining of the theatres along the former Theatre Row (now known as Broad Street). Considered as the top music venue in Richmond, it has a seating capacity of 1,500 and features a modern V-DOSC sound system which is one of only three existing installations in the East Coast. It is a favorite venue for concerts and is highly commended for its facilities. The Landmark Theatre, as its name implies, is truly a landmark in the city of Richmond. Located the southwest corner of Monroe Park, its distinctive Moorish Revival design is something that cannot be missed. It was originally built in 1926 and called “The Mosque” because it was to be used by the Shriners as a temple. It was bought by the city in the 1940s and was eventually renovated in 1995, after which the name was changed to its current name. Now, the Landmark Theatre is a multi-purpose venue with a seating capacity of over 3,500 hosting Broadway musicals, concerts and various other theatrical performances. Its ballroom has a standing capacity of 1,000 and hosts galas and fashion shows. For sporting events, the Richmond Coliseum on East Leigh Street is the place to visit. It is an indoor arena opened in 1971 with a seating capacity 13,500. It used to be largest arena in the state of Virginia before the John Paul Jones Arena came about in 2006. It hosts a variety of games namely, basketball, baseball, indoor football, hockey and wrestling. The Richmond Coliseum has also been a venue for Professional Bull Riders and the Built Ford Tough Series. It has a special tunnel through which vehicles and monster trucks can enter the coliseum for special performances.
