Park Theatre

The Park Theatre has begun its second life in the community due to a process of grants and a group of volunteers. In 2011, ACT II: Plan, Preserve, and Protect was founded to identify and pursue grants as well as raise cash through a broad range of events and fundraisers. Grants from LPRF and the Delta Regional Authority along with the City of McKenzie began the work of making the building structurally sound, safe, and usable for community meetings, workshops, theatrical performances and movies on the week-end. Community Leaders such as McKenzie Banking Company, the McKenzie Industrial Board, Carroll Bank & Trust, Bank of Gleason, Ruth & John H. Morris Memorial, the Kermit Holland family and Beta Sigma Phi donated various sums of money from $ 5,000 – 35,000.00 to buy equipment for the theatre. The Park Theatre is a self-supporting entity of the city.
