About the Theatre
The Isis Theatre was purchased by the City of Crete and renovated by the Blue River Arts Council, which operates the theatre in a non-profit format staffed primarily by volunteers. “Resurrecting the goddess” brought movies back to the community, and is a great place to gather for live theatre, concerts, performances, presentations, and more!
As a non-profit organization, the Isis Theatre depends entirely grant funding and on the donations of caring people. Just by being here, you help the Blue River Arts Council (BRAC) keep the arts vibrant and meaningful in our community. Every dollar helps, and we’re grateful for the contributions our supporters have made over the years. To show our gratitude, donors of $2,500 or more are added to the donor wall in the foyer if gifts are received prior to opening. Want to add your name or that of someone you love? Click the donate button to make your contribution, and we’ll prominently display your generosity. After the theatre reopens, you will be able to get your name up in lights with a movie or event sponsorship. We’ll give you or your organization credit on screen, on the marquee, and on printed materials for that event. Please consider donating to this worthy cause. Donations can also be made to the Blue River Arts Council through the mail to P.O. Box 272, Crete, NE, 68333. Feel free to earmark gifts intended for the Isis Theatre.
The Isis Theatre is operated by the Blue River Arts Council, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity, which is dependent on voluteers for operation. We need help from our community every time we open the door. You can help at the concession counter or in the projection room on movie night. We need ushers and ticket-takers for special events. Even graphics artists and bookkeepers help keep the Isis operating. We’re deeply grateful to all the volunteers and hope you come to join us.
Isis Theatre events are managed by the Blue River Arts Council as part of our mission to bridge cultures, build community, and boost the economy. Make a night of it at a movie or theatre production. Enjoy a concert or lecture with like-minded friends. Gather your colleagues for a seminar. Celebrate a birthday or anniversary – you can even rent the theatre for a celebration no one will ever forget. And if you have an idea for an event, let us know! We’re always open to new ideas that will interest our community.
