History of ISIS Theatre
The Blue River Arts Council was formed in 2018 to provide Southeast Nebraska access to quality arts and entertainment opportunities. Their first major project was renovating and re-opening the Isis Theatre with a nonprofit format. The Isis was built in 1926 and was considered so technologically advanced it instantly became a regional landmark. Since then, the theatre has been a cornerstone of Crete’s downtown area, an important part of the business community – and the place memories are made for generations of moviegoers. Bringing the Isis into a new century is only one of the Blue River Arts Council’s activities. They also host or sponsor art shows, live performances, educational opportunities for kids and adults, and events that bring the whole community together. It’s all part of our mission to bridge cultures, build community, and boost the economy by resurrecting the Isis Theatre in Crete, Nebraska. We aim to provide fun and artistic adventures for all of our diverse community. Thanks goes out to our community for helping fulfill this mission – and for being part of keeping the silver screen lit in the Blue River valley.
