The Ellen Renovation Fund

It was December 1919 when the Story family unveiled the new crown jewel of downtown Bozeman, The Ellen Theatre.

Montana TheatreWorks, the non-profit group that operates the theatre, is using architect Fred Willson's original blueprints and historic photographs to return this lovely lady to her original beauty. The latest addition - a facade makeover, unveiled in 2019, with every detail just as it was over 100 years ago, including a graceful stained-glass canopy, elegant windows and magnificent wooden doors. The entire facade project cost over $400,000, with all monies raised from local donors.

The Ellen is a non-profit theatre and all donations are tax-deductible.

Up next...

First - we look forward to getting back in the business of entertaining the public. Once we are able to return to a standard schedule, we will be raising funds for a vertical "ELLEN" blade sign, matching the original that was in place from 1919. Also needed - a reworking and renovation of the fly-space, the grid area above the stage that houses backdrops, our movie screen, lighting and curtains. 

Thank you for considering a contribution to The Ellen. Your gift will keep this grand lady vibrant and the crown jewel of downtown Bozeman for generations to come. Giving levels are listed below and, of course, any amount is appreciated.
