About the Project

The Benson Theatre is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that fosters the success of artists, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, and underserved populations within the historic community of Benson. Our goal is to acquire and restore the historic Benson Theatre at 6054 Maple Street in Omaha to serve as a shared community space for business education and artistic performance. The Benson Theatre will offer independent programming and serve as an alternative stage in north Omaha for existing nonprofits, schools, and performing arts organizations.

Built in 1923 as a vaudeville theater, the Benson Theatre building is currently closed to public assembly and in need of a full renovation. Benson is a flourishing arts and entertainment district, and the timing to restore this historic theater and bring more diverse entertainment and vital business education to north Omaha has never been better. The Theatre’s prime location in downtown Benson has the potential to bring thousands of new visitors to the Benson business district for more than 500 events annually.

 

Fundraising Goal

The Benson Theatre Project is currently raising $250,000 to purchase the historic Benson Theatre by April 2014. We raised more than $70,000 in cash and in-kind donations during Phase I of fundraising to lease the building from April 2012 to April 2013 and apply for 501(c)3 nonprofit status from the IRS (granted in September 2012). Your tax-deductible donation will help preserve a historic landmark and support more educational opportunities for Benson and the greater Omaha community.

Help us reach our goal and donate to the Benson Theatre Project. For more information on Benson Theatre sponsorships, contact Amy Ryan at amy@bensontheatre.org.

Historic Restoration

The Benson Theatre first operated from 1923-1926 as the Benalto Theater. From 1927-1953, the theater was part of a chain of neighborhood theaters owned by the Epstein Bros. The Benson Theatre could originally seat an assembly of 400 for vaudeville performances, film screenings, and community events. The Benson Theatre Project is working with Omaha architect Alley Poyner Macchietto and Omaha general contractor Lund-Ross Constructors to complete the historic renovation. The estimated $850,000 project will include:
