The United States Navy Memorial

Navy Memorial Honor, recognize, & celebrate the men and women of the sea services.

Sponsor A Theater Chair



After almost 30 years of Navy ceremonies, corporate events and Hollywood movie screenings at the Navy Memorial, the chairs in the Arleigh & Roberta Burke Theater are ready for an upgrade! 

The Burke Theater features state-of-the-art capabilities, including Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound, digital cinema projection, full audio-visual support, sound isolation, adjustable lighting, and climate control. We are one of the few destinations in Washington, D.C., able to boast this world-class technology.

With increasing visitation at the Navy Memorial, we are enhancing our guest experience by installing brand new, comfortable chairs and a center aisle, which will make it easier to enter and exit the theater with little disruption to others.


Sponsor a Chair. Leave a Legacy.

Our revitalized entertainment space will hold 230 chairs, each with a personalized brass plate on the armrest.

Your tax-deductible donation will “buy” a theater chair with a custom engraved plate. This is a special opportunity to Honor, Recognize and Celebrate your service, that of a loved one, a former ship, your company, or a friend.

Please join us in commemorating the men and women of the Sea Services and giving thousands of visitors a memorable experience by sponsoring a theater chair.
