Historic Theater – Modern Experience

Renting the Theater

The Willcox Historic Theater (either or both auditoriums) is available for rental by outside groups on a very limited basis given the busy programming schedule already in place. Priority is given to groups who present programming that is open to the public and reflective of the mission and goals of Willcox Historic Theater Preservation, Inc.

The earlier arrangements are made, the more likely your requested date will be available.

The larger auditorium seats 132 and has a small stage. The smaller seats 88 and also has a stage. Audio equipment including microphones and amplifiers is available and basic lighting can be provided. WHTP will provide a projectionist. Renters are not permitted to operate the equipment. Showing of DVDs is subject to copyright law and renters who plan to show DVDs must demonstrate that they have the proper license. Rental of the theater for business meetings, private parties or other events is possible on weekday mornings and afternoons since there is little programming occurring at those times. Other time slots are approved on a case-by-case basis.

The smaller auditorium is ideal for multimedia presentations, film screenings (digital only), community events, private events, and children’s birthday parties. Capacity for this space is 88 seats. If you are interested in renting space at the Theater please contact the Theater management via the Contact Us Form and use Theater Rental as the first line.
