Give to the Capital Campaign
The Midwest Theater Capital Campaign is specifically for those patrons who wish to contribute exclusively to the building/maintenance fund for the Midwest Theater building.
Scottsbluff’s Midwest Theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1946 the Midwest Theater was designed in Art Moderne style and served for decades as one of the centers of social life in hte North Platte Valley. The theater closed in 1996, but in its 50 years it served as the birthplace of chreished memories–first movies, first dates, first jobs, propsals, glimpses of stars and far-away places. . . shining from the silver screen.
The theater was donated to Oregon Trail Community Foundation. Friends of the Midwest Theater was organized to address specific needs and special challenges of the theater. Donations are needed to keep the theater alive and well and any amount that you can contribute to the Capital Campaign fund will be used only for building improvements and repairs. As of Nov 2014 Friends of the Midwest Theater have invested 1.8 million dollars of renovations & improvements since taking over care of the building in Nov 1998. We could not have done it without the support of the community.
