Merced Theatre renovation update
MERCED, CA — The Merced Theatre is in the midst of a detailed restoration. With the goal of eventually restoring the theater to its original single-screen glory and making it yet again the center of Merced, they are well on their way.
Currently, the roof is being replaced and the tower is getting a structural upgrade. Additionally, they are working to reactivate the ground floor store fronts and attract new tenants. All this should be done in time for their Diamond Jubilee Gala on October 21st. Tickets for this event are sold out right now but you can call 209-722-3266 as the event approaches to see if anything opens up.
They also hold a film series in one of the existing theaters inside of the current quad. “Top Hat” will be shown on September 23 and 24th followed by “West Side Story” and “Doctor Zhivago” later in the season.
To rent the theater, volunteer for the film series, make a donation, or any other inquiries, call 209-722-3266 or write to:
