The Fowler Theatre is a non-profit, historically renovated, landmark theatre on the National Register of Historic Places and the winner of the 2016 Cook Cup Award for Outstanding Historic Renovation. We are located in the small town of Fowler in Benton County, Indiana.
Our goal is to keep ticket prices and concessions affordable for our rural, economically challenged community. We do this by operating the theatre with a grant funded, part-time manager and a team of volunteers who work the theatre showing movies every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night. We strive to bring a variety of arts entertainment to our community including improv shows, comedy shows, magic shows, concerts, local high school band performances, storytellers, and even paranormal investigations as it’s rumored the theatre is haunted!
The year 2020 is an exciting year in that we will be celebrating our 80th birthday. Unfortunately 2019 repairs and declining ticket sales have put our future at risk. We not only struggle with the normal operational costs of running a business, we are tackling a past debt that was acquired originally to aid with restorations. Weekend movies alone will not allow us to be solvent. With your support and donations, The Fowler Theatre can continue to bring arts entertainment to Benton County for years to come.
