YOU ARE INVITED!
Join us for an evening of jazz, cocktails, history, film and an a celebratory effort to build a bright future for the creative arts in our community!
As many cities are abandoning their classic 20th century theaters, our small town in rural northern Indiana is racing to save ours. The Goshen Theater has seen fires and floods and stood the test of time but not without compromise. Without renewed life, this grandiose, irreplaceable center for the arts will be destroyed.
Time is ticking to save this cornerstone of the community and return it to its former glory.
"Admit One," is the story of the history of this classic theater and the people trying to revive it.
