Minarets and mosaics adorn this enchanting building. It seems to have leapt out of the Arabian Nights onto Richmond's Laurel Street. Marbled halls, columns and more elaborate mosaic work fill the interior and you almost suspect a genie might be waiting around the next corner. This theater, formerly called The Mosque because of its Middle Eastern look, was built in 1926 by the Shriners as their Acca Temple Shrine. The city purchased it in 1940 and restored it in 1994-95. Guided group tours are available by appointment.
