One could not overlook the Milton Theatre when writing about the history of the town of Milton in Delaware. From the early silent movie days to the modern wide-screen, color, talking movies, the Milton Theatre proved to be a great place of entertainment for local ciitizens and played an important role in the town’s developing character.
In 1939, with a seating capacity of 434, the theater was considered far superior to many larger theaters, accoustically and visually. The theater building (circa 1905)survived three major fires, but extensive water damage from the Great Storm of 1962 caused the Milton Theatre to close its doors for good, with Elvis Presley’s “Blue Hawaii” being the last feature film shown.
The Milton Development Corporation formed as a non-profit 501-©(3)in 2000, with a mission to renovate the old theater building to its former usage as a forum for the presentation of classic silent movies and a venue for the performing arts.
The Milton Development Corporation has raised $300,000 of the estimated $1.8M needed for the Milton Theatre Project. We are exploring every possible avenue to raise the necessary funds to preserve the Milton Theatre and restore it to a valued state.
