Every contribution to THS, no matter what size, helps us in the effort to preserve and share our country’s rich theatre history. Donations and membership dues support the ongoing efforts of THS to preserve and share the rich cultural history of America’s historic theatres through initiatives like the preservation of collections in the American Theatre Architecture Archive.
Over the years, materials from our collections have provided information for projects such as:
• National Geographic’s We Americans
• Turner Classic Movies’ “Moguls and Movie Stars: A History of Hollywood”
• The restoration of New York’s New Amsterdam Theatre
• The restoration of Chicago’s Oriental Theater
• Countless National Historic Landmark applications
• Numerous scholarly and academic papers
But the cost of preserving these materials isn’t insignificant. We need your financial support to help us preserve and share these resources with the world at large.
In gratitude for support, we’re pleased to offer the following benefits (click on the image to view a larger version):
Consider setting up a recurring monthly payment of $10 via the online portal.
