Founded in 1969, THS continues to celebrate and document the rich architectural, cultural and social history of America’s theatres because of support like yours.

Over the years, support from our members has helped us provide source materials and research from our one-of-a-kind collections for:

  • 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

This year alone, we were able to:

  • Increase access to our one-of-a-kind collection (both online and in-person)
  • Celebrate theatres by planning local events and bringing members together
  • Provide complimentary research to historic theatres and preservation groups for historic nomination applications
  • Share stories and new research in Marquee™ and other publications
  • Build stronger connections with like-minded individuals and organizations

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. Become a member today and help us preserve this piece of history for generations to come.
