  1. How much has been raised so far and where is it? Kingman Center for the Arts has been raising money for this renovation since our inception in 2016. Below is an accounting of our capital campaign activity from that time. The theater mortgage and administrative expenses for the project are paid out of event ticket sales. For a full report, contact our executive director.

2. Who owns the theater? Kingman Center for the Arts owns the Beale Street Theater. We purchased it from the Peterson Family in 2018. KCA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization so all donations are tax deductible. Our EIN is 81-2229879.

3. Who is doing the renovation work? Michael Taylor is the architect and Stages is our staging consultant. T. R. Orr is teaming up with Angle Homes to handle the general contracting on the project. The project is currently out for bids.

4. What are the plans for the finished theater? The finished theater will be a community performing arts venue for the city of Kingman. It will be a multi-use venue. We will produce a season of live community theater shows and host other community led productions, present a variety of professional entertainers, including musicians, professional theater groups, film festivals, and classic cinema and be available for rent to private users for meetings and private events.

The Beale Street Theater Designs

The Exterior of the building will retain historic styling; to be enhanced with a new Marquee, extended overhangs, and a new ticket window.
The welcoming Lobby features a vaulted opening with a stairway to the second floor Founder’s Lounge, polished concrete floors, and warm wood accents.
The multipurpose Theater interior features exposed original rafters under the curved ceiling, permanent seating for 298, and a removable front stage section that, when removed, adds space for another 50 seats. An Italian curtain completes the stage, and state-of-the-art lighting and sound technology will enhance performances. The theater can also be used for screening movies.
