"The Show Must Go On," is a phrase we use again and again. However, this iconic tagline means so much more for our foundation. We encourage you to be part of our history as we resurrect this historic landmark and reopen The Midland Theater.
Your tax-deductible donation will help The Midland Theater Foundation reopen the theater and event center for our community and future generations.
Built in 1928, The Midland Theater is rich in history. With a past as magnificent as its architecture, we hope this iconic structure can be restored to its former glory.
The Midland Theater is recognized by the Kansas Historical Society and listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places.
The Midland Theater Foundation has developed plans to renovate and repurpose the Midland into a much needed cultural, educational, and community hub.
At the completion of each of four projects, specific venues in the Midland will be offering innovative youth programs as well as traditional film and theatrical events.
