First Lady Melania Trump Opens New Section of the White House for ‘First Time in History’

To both, those who have never visited the White House and those who’ve visited it before, there is a new reason to take a walk through the historic building.

On Friday, First Lady Melania Trump announced that one of the more entertaining rooms of the White House – the famous movie theater – will now be open to the public “for the first time in history.”

In its May 12 statement, the White House noted that, “at the direction of First Lady Melania Trump, visitors to the East Wing are now being treated to a new piece of history along the tour route … the White House movie theater.”

Trump said the following with the announcement:

“The White House belongs to the people of this country.

I believe everyone who takes the time to visit and tour the White House should have as much access to its rich history and wonderful traditions as possible. It is my hope that our visitors truly enjoy the newest piece of the tour.”

The first lady also shared the news on social media, including a shot of the theater, which includes a total of 51 seats:

The room has a long history. It was first converted from a cloakroom in 1942, under the orders of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The room has had several renovations since then, under the Reagan administration in the 80’s, and again under President George W. Bush.

Administrations often treat special guests, such as military personnel and their families – to viewings in the theater:

A number of presidents have reportedly used the room to rehearse major speeches during their various administrations, such as the State of the Union:

Perhaps most importantly, however, is that it has served as a way for the president to take a break from the stress of their job and relax with his family, when circumstances allow.

The video below was released by the White House to accompany their announcement, which previews the area that guests can now see for the first time:
