Original Building

You will be thrilled when you experience the progress of the West Shore Theatre! The original building was rescued and purchased by a group of resolute community leaders who formed the nonprofit, Friends of the West Shore Theatre, Inc. to save and develop the theatre into an arts center for the region.

With an eye to restoring the flavor of the original theatre, woodwork was restored and duplicated, the beloved ceiling has been positioned in the lobby, and the grand art-deco side wall design is exactly duplicated preserving the elegance of the original theatre.

The added stage, retractable screen, booth seating arrangement, and concessions have all been reinvented to be modern and functional to meet customer comfort for today’s functions.

Visitors from arts groups, nonprofit organizations, business leaders and more visit daily to observe project progress and immediately want to know how they can sign up to use the space for their event, recital, or function.

Phase I construction of the theatre building is complete, but funding is not yet all in place. Phase I still requires approximately $500.000 to be completely paid for. Please consider donating today. We also have naming opportunities still available.
