MGM National Harbor, the newest resort destination in the Capital Region, has a new Theater designed by Sceno Plus, a performing arts and entertainment design firm out of Canada.

The 3,000-seat venue within the $1.4 billion resort and casino was designed to host such events as concerts, UFC, cabaret-style acts and boxing. The venue has reconfigurable seating options to deliver optimal sightlines, along with telescopic seating that allows for custom arrangements for each event. Possible options include a traditional concert layout to a 360-degree configuration for boxing.

For guests using one of the seven VIP suites, the Theater has a private suite entrance, a VIP lobby with a full-service bar and new décor. The Theater’s three center suites can be combined into one to create space for up to 200 guests.
