call to join the Friends of the Braumart

We need your help. It’s that simple. Our community suffers from a substantial gap in the arts. Our bold vision of developing the historic Braumart Theater into a dynamic center, which embraces all arts and artists and provides cultural, educational and economic stimulus for the area and to provide a social and cultural gathering space is very simply…..a vision. We are very passionate about this vision which is why we need your help determining how to best bring this to life to serve our wonderful community.

Restoring this historic theatre is a rare chance to do something special for our community. With the support of the community, the Braumart can provide us with a central location for arts and culture showcased in a beautiful historic building. Many communities have overlooked the importance of a local theatre to downtown vitality. Considering the Braumart as an economic as well as cultural asset opens doors to new opportunities and new life for our downtown.

We are all very fortunate to enjoy the amazing quality of life that this area provides. It is a great place to raise a family and there is no comparison to the outdoor opportunities that are available to all of us. To make things even better and to round out the opportunities available to all of us, Dickinson County and the surrounding area needs an enriched cultural atmosphere that provides economic stimulus as a benefit. Many local cultural groups have expressed a need for facilities that are available, affordable and up-to-date to showcase and support local artists. Employers also report that attracting and retaining quality employees is challenging because of a significant cultural gap in the arts. A renovated historic theater will provide a venue for ongoing educational opportunities and community activities for people of all ages.

Emotional bonds – We have heard countless stories of fond memories of members of our community over the 80 plus year life of this historic theater. Among our favorite stories are those of first dates with high school sweethearts at the theater who became future husbands and wives. There are also those who remember as a kid saving up some change to catch a movie and eat some of that outrageously good theater popcorn. We can all close our eyes and smell the buttery goodness of our favorite theater delicacy.

Excitement – It is always wonderful to hear the excitement in people’s voices when they learn that this community gem is going to be restored.
