The Milton Theatre has a rich and meaningful history in Sussex County, Delaware. Erected in circa 1910, the two-story building served, at one time or another, as the Town's basketball hall, fire station, social center & community stage. Various retail businesses and restaurants also thrived there, but its most popular role was as the community's celebrated art deco movie house in the 1930's, featuring silent films, later, "talkies,” and eventually live entertainment. The structure itself has survived three major fires, the Great Storm of '62 and many other nor'easters, but decades of neglect nearly spelled its demise until members of the Milton community rallied for its revival. In 1999, it was renovated into a multi-use performing arts and cultural center, cinema house and venue for community programming and specials events. Currently, The Milton Theatre organization is realizing its mission to inspire and entertain community the community and beyond through high quality performances and presentations.
