For more information, photos, etc. on the Aberdeen, Mississippi Elkin Theatre go to www.aberdeenartscouncil.com
The Elkin Theatre at 110 W.Commerce has been owned by a group of about 100 families since 1986, and has been in the process of renovation since then. The Mississippi Arts Commission awarded the Elkin a grant several years ago to install central heat and air conditioning in the historic theatre,and the organization recently installed surround sound in the auditorium. The Elkin opened in 1937. Current seating is 455 in the main auditorium. The staff shows current films on Friday and Saturday evenings. It is a non-profit organization and all staffing is by volunteers. Other events at the Elkin include concerts, plays, seminars, fashion shows, art shows by the local school,an annual Rotary Club Scholars Reception, an active Elkin Childrens Theatre group, which will present “The Wizard of Oz” in the summer of 2005, ticket sales for events such as the Annual Pilgimage of Homes, etc., working to be a “Center for the Arts” for the small community.
Some of the information on the Elkin Theatre is incorrect; address, year of opening, current use, etc. How can we correct the information?
