  • Engagement - As our community’s largest living room, we are a forum for public engagement in the Arts, education, and community involvement and improvement. We celebrate the tremendous power of the communal experience.
  • Responsibility - We are the stewards of our historic 1928 theatre, and as such we take great pride and care in preserving our home. We will use the resources entrusted to us in a responsible manner, and we will take seriously your confidence in us. We firmly believe that our work has enormous potential to make a difference.
