The Byham Theater is a performing arts venue owned and operated by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and located inside the historic Fulton Building, which was complete in 1906 and named after steamboat pioneer Robert Fulton (1765-1815).

It shares the building with the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel.

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is an economic and cultural development organization established in 1984 It came into existence largely due to the initiative of local industrialist Henry John Heinz II (1908-1987), the grandson of Henry John Heinz (1844-1919) and founder of the food giant H. J. Heinz Company.

Opened in 1904, the theater was a vaudeville house originally called the Gayety and welcomed some of the biggest stars of the era. By the 1930s it became a full-time cinema and renamed the Fulton Theater. The Cultural Trust acquired the theater in 1990 and refurbished it with financial assistance provided by the family of retired local entrepreneur and author William C. Byham.

Today, both local productions and traveling shows stage performances at the Byham.
