Who are we?
Call us crazy…maybe.
But this group of dedicated volunteers has a crystal clear vision. We see an opportunity to promote vibrant and diverse entertainment to our beloved community. We are business and community leaders, and when we roll up our sleeves, there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
It all starts with vision. Our organization was born out of the need for more entertainment options in our community.
The Arcadia was a natural fit for our team of volunteers when local business man Steve Huser decided to gift the theater to us in late 2018.
With the historic theater now under our control we have initiated a capital campaign with local foundations, businesses, and individuals to breathe life back into our downtown nestled along the Guadalupe River.
