The Milton Theatre, located in historic downtown Milton Delaware, has had an illustrious history in its more than 100 year existence. Erected circa 1910, the two-story building served, at one time or another, as the town’s movie theatre, basketball hall, fire station, social center & community stage. Various retail businesses & restaurants also thrived there. It has survived 3 major fires, countless “nor’easters”, and decades of neglect. But now, it proudly stands as a hub of artistic culture, not just to the town of Milton, but to the Delmarva Peninsula.


Happening on July 7, we invite everyone to the grand launch of The Milton Theatre Renaissance Initiative, our new $2.5 million capital campaign that will raise funds for the next 3-5 years to purchase the theatre and solidify our legacy as a performing arts venue for future generations.
