In New York, we’ve got everything from haunted
hotels to haunted restaurants that you can experience for yourself. One thing you might not have known though is that one of the most haunted theater’s in the country is actually in the central part of our state. More than just a jaw-dropping venue, find out why many firmly believe that the Landmark Theatre in Syracuse is haunted.
Located on South Salina Street, the Landmark Theatre in Syracuse is known for being a head-turning location.
The 1920s charm of this theater may be distracting, but at one point or another, you may notice that something feels a bit eerie in here.
Many believe that the Landmark Theatre is haunted by the spirit of at least one if not two spirits.
There are quite a few variations of the tale, but the most common one that you’ll hear is that a woman named Clarissa fell off of the balcony in the theater to her death.
Many believe that witness the spirit of Clarissa in the theater in different ways, with some smelling the scent of the flowers she was always known to be carrying, while others claim to actually see her princess-like spirit roaming the halls.
Some also believe that Clarissa’s spirit isn’t the only one in the theater, in fact, some say that the reason Clarissa fell to her death is that she witnessed the man she loved, a stagehand, accidentally get executed on the stage.
So, have you ever felt the spirit of Clarissa or anyone else while you’ve been inside the Landmark Theatre?
The area itself is one that’s no stranger to haunted tales and whispers of local spirits haunting buildings, but many truly believe that the Landmark Spirit is home to the ghost of Clarissa. Some even say that Clarissa has such a distaste for cigarettes that she once scared a member of a rock band that was performing at the theater and had made his way down to the tunnel she’s known to wander in. Yikes!
