The Moody Theater (Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater or ACL Live) is the theater and studio for Austin City Limits, a live music television program and the longest-running music series in US television history. It was completed in 2011 as a part of Block 21, a mixed-use, LEED certified development complex in Downtown Austin.
The Moody Foundation of Galveston, which the building is named after, donated $2.5 million to KLRU (Austin PBS) to help situate this studio on Second Street (Willie Nelson Boulevard). The theater can hold up to 2,750 audience members and offers around 100 concerts and 100 private events a year, in addition to the filming of Austin City Limits.
Whether you want to experience a tour, an ACL taping or a concert, the Moody Theater has something for every music lover. For photography lovers, the theater also houses the Jack & Jim Gallery, which exhibits an archive of the works of photographer Jim Marshall.
This theater offers immersive insight into the musical workings of Austin with an unforgettable range of events. With more companies coming to Austin, new local restaurants popping up frequently, and the population continuing to rise, there is something for everyone. If you are new to the area and want an inspired, intimate musical experience, the Moody Theater is the place to go.
Austin is the 11-most populous city in the United States with over two million calling the area home. With everything there is to do in this fast-growing region of Central Texas, it’s no wonder why so many people are excited to call Austin home.
