Description
The McIntire Theatre (McIntire Amphitheater) is used for student gatherings and occasional musical events. Designed by Fiske Kimball, architect, architectural historian, and first dean of the Architecture School, it was completed in 1921. University President Alderman and McIntire intended the theatre as a site for numerous cultural events. Its first use was for the University's centennial exercises in 1921, attended by University alumnus and U.S. President Woodrow Wilson. -- UVa Office of the Architect
