How Will the 2nd Decade of the 21st Century be Remembered? 

The 1920s were marked by a thirst for renewal, a break from tradition, and a celebration of artistry in all its forms. In the 21st century, we find ourselves at a similar crossroads, yearning for a new golden age of cultural engagement that reflects our time, values, and boundless potential.

Join us for the Buskirk-Chumley Theater’s Power of Human Connection Campaign this week! The theater is uniquely positioned at this moment to usher in a new era of prosperity through harnessing the power of human connection and the arts.

Shape the Future with Us

The Power of Human Connection Campaign is not just about looking back; it’s about embracing the future. By reimagining cultural dynamics for the 21st century, we can pave the way for a world defined by creativity, inclusivity, and limitless possibilities.

In the last century, the Vonderschmidt Family joined their peers in fronting the dream that became the Golden Age of entertainment. The movie houses of the past have since evolved, and so has the economy.

In this post-Covid world, nonprofits use the power of philanthropy to raise capital to benefit social good. As a 501(c)3 organization, this era of the Buskirk-Chumley Theater is owned by YOU and your fellow supporters. Gone are the days of the Andrew Carnegies and John Rockefellers, instead, you and your peers are going to be the investors of the next era of unparalleled creativity. This is your chance to illustrate the power of human connection at work!
