You might not be so familiar with Schenectady, NY. Located about 15 miles outside of the state capital of Albany, it's where Proctor's Theatre has sat since 1926, playing host to entertainers through the years from Duke Ellington to Mariah Carey. In fact, if you've seen Ms. Carey's music video for “Hero,” you've at least seen Proctor's. The video was shot there during a concert special in 1993.
