Murat Egyptian Room Information
Construction completed in 1909, and owned by Murat Shriners of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, the Old National Centre, originally the Murat Centre, is a notable landmark of Indianapolis. The oldest stage house in Indianapolis still standing, and the only Shrine temple in the world with a French-originating name, it reflects much of the city’s history, in its grand, unusual, and beautiful architecture. Featuring a performing arts theatre with seating for 2,600, a concert hall for 1800, a banquet room and a massive function room, all in addition to the Grand Lobby, the Old National Centre provides a unique and luxurious experience to all visitors.
With a stage large enough to house Broadway performances and major concerts, as well as the comfort and intimacy required for smaller-scale or solo shows, the Old National Centre is host to a wide variety of performances. Notable recent shows include Wicked, The Lion King, and Dreamgirls.
