DSC_0036Become a Member of Friends of the Midwest Theater!

Friends of the Midwest Theater was organized in 1998 to keep the historic movie theater on Broadway in downtown Scottsbluff a vital part of the community. The 1946 Art Modérne building, along with the adjacent Baumgartner building, has been restored and is the community’s premier venue for movies, musical and theatrical performances, recitals, weddings…a broad variety of programming. The Midwest Theater is a treasure of a resource that seats over 700 patrons!

Why Become a Member?

The majority of our operating expenses are paid from annual sustaining membership funds. Our members keep the doors open and allow us to offer programs that enlighten and entertain, as well as reasonably offer this beautiful facility as a venue to other organizations and individuals (call the office at 632-4311 for rental information). Members instantly become a part of our history by joining the legacy of supporters who have preserved this treasure for nearly 75 years and will continue to preserve her for future generations.
