Fort Peck Theatre Preservation Endowment
The Fort Peck Theatre is celebrating 50 years of bringing excellent entertainment to Northeastern Montana. The building, constructed to be a movie house, first opened in 1934 to entertain the workers during the construction of Fort Peck Dam. During the "Dam Days" movies ran 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It stands as a historic tribute to that era. However, the theatre continues to remain a vital part of our community for culture and education to our residents and visitors, for today, and hopefully into the future.
Maintaining the beauty and safety of the theatre building is very important. To do this, the Fort Peck Theatre Preservation Endowment was established. All gifts received are held in the Fort Peck Theatre Endowment Fund administered by the Montana Community Foundation, a professional money manager. Donations are invested to earn interest and capital appreciation, with minimal risk. The interest earnings received are used to maintain the integrity, beauty, and safety of the There. Maintaining the building can be costly, but necessary to preserve the history of our area.
Gifts to the Endowment may be given at any time. Donations may be given as a memorial, celebration, or in honor of a family member, friend, or special occasion such as birth, wedding, or anniversary, etc. We welcome your gifts and will be happy to provide any information you need. Brochures are available in the Gift Shop. We are dedicated to the proper and loving care of maintaining the integrity and safety of the Theatre for your enjoyment in the years to come. Gifts can be large or small and are tax deductible. Consistent growth of the endowment is important to the upkeep of the Theatre.
A vibrant charitable community is vital to preserving the history and future of the Fort Peck Theatre.
