About Us

Hello, and thank you for wanting to learn more about us.

Gateway Milbridge is a non-profit 501c3 designated organization formed to help with a downtown revitalization effort for Milbridge.  Our members are local volunteers, and a priority is to "Bring Back the Milbridge Theatre."

Our vision is for Milbridge to be an open, welcoming, stimulating, and engaged community that is healthy for our youth and encourages people to call Milbridge their home.  We envision Milbridge as a safe, walkable downtown with community gathering spaces and a revitalized and thriving town center that attracts new businesses and provides increased services for residents and travelers alike.  We hope for Milbridge to become a compelling destination unto itself, as well as a full-service gateway to DownEast Maine and the Bold Coast region.

Bringing Back the Milbridge Theatre is a primary focus for our group. You can get a quick overview of the project through our Project Fact Sheet and more information can be found in the Project Details section of our website.

Gateway Milbridge's plan for replacing the theatre is to create a new, modern and welcoming regional movie, entertainment, and arts center in its place. The rebuilt theatre and arts center will not only provide our region with a venue for movies, community gathering space, and live performances, but it will engage volunteers, attract visitors to the area, and fill a critical commercial anchor in the center of Milbridge- quite possibly leading to the opening of new businesses and the strengthening of existing ones. Naturally, we want the space to offer a much-needed safe and positive gathering place for our region's young people as well.

We hope you will help us Bring Back the Milbridge Theatre!

We are pleased to be working in close cooperation with the Maine Association of Nonprofits, the Maine Community Foundation, and The Maine Philanthropy Center.  We sincerely appreciate their support!
