The Virginia Beach Pavilion Center groundbreaking was February 14, 1978; it was completed and dedicated on March 14, 1981. Pavilion Festival week (March 13-22) included tours of the building and a student art show in the Galleria. Each night a musical concert or stage performance was held in the Theater. Pavilion was a project of city manager George Hanbury and the City Council. Situated just off the end of I-264, the building was designed for multiple uses: a large theater seating 1000 for musical and stage events, a galleria for art shows, meeting rooms for small group meetings, and a large area that could be used for exhibits, trade shows, and large meetings or dinners. The building was demolished in 2005.
