Saving a National Landmark!
Revitalization efforts of The Coliseum Theatre and its surrounding properties are ongoing. Under the guidance of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History and The United States Department of The Interior, strategic planning for the preservation and further restoration of the building is underway. Thanks to almost a quarter million dollars in funding in the last year, the roof is being replaced above our stage and lobbies. Further renovations are scheduled for our restrooms, lighting and audio systems, lobby lighting, safety and first-aid equipment, dressing rooms, fly system upgrades, and other aspects of the facility. The staff is working to rebuild an archive related to the history of the building! Opportunities for naming rights and recognition are available! Please get in touch with our Managing Director for more information.
