The Muse Theatre Foundation is a local non-profit started by people who care about the historical values of Houston County, and in particular, the classic Muse Theatre in downtown Perry. We started this with a vision of being a great place to watch classic and recent movies in a cutting edge cinema. With a vision of being a live venue for concerts and stage acts. And lastly, with a vision of being an accessible community center, open to hosting any events, with a focus on giving to the community. Our foundation really needs a lot of support, so please consider donating on our main page. Our board members are as follows: President - Billy Milby Vice President - Jon Pierce Treasurer - Carla Hillis Secretary - Joy Peterson

PERRY -- Betsy Portman recalls the smell of fresh popcorn, the “click, click, click” of the movie reel turning on the projector and the cloud of cigarette smoke hanging overhead.

The Muse Theatre Foundation is honored to have been recognized by the Balvaunuca Club with their support and a generous donation this past Tuesday. We are so happy to have you guys behind us!

We are sorry to have to reiterate this again, but there seems to be some misinformation spreading.

The Muse Theatre is NOT being turned into an antique market!

What happened is that we were on the verge of losing the opportunity to buy the theatre, we had not raised the money to buy it. So a very, very generous third party bought the theatre for us to take it off the market until we could raise enough money to buy it ourselves and restore it.

But keeping the building insured, powered and paid up on taxes still takes a good bit of money. So the owner is TEMPORARILY hosting an antique market to offset the cost of ownership until we have raised enough money.

If you hear any of these rumors spreading around, please help us out by setting them straight.

Thank you, everyone, and please continue to show your support.

Flashback In The Muse

Back in December we had a small gathering in the Muse for a bit of a "sound check", we had a blast and this was part of the result. Big thanks to the band Flashback for coming in and putting on a great show!

Save the Muse Theatre!

We know it has been a little while since we have given you an update, so I'll let you guys have a peek at what is going on.

First off, our project is only happening because someone bought the building for us until we can afford to buy it ourselves. We owe a great deal for this, and our thanks are enormous. He is for now though footing the bill on insurance and electricity among other things, so to help offset the costs there will be a temporary antique market in the theatre. I want to emphasize that this is just temporary, and it will also give everyone the opportunity to go and check out the theatre and also hear some live music (which we plan to have on a regular basis).

Also, we are still waiting our official 501(C)(3) status, but it is definitely coming and everything has been submitted. But in the meantime you can send donations made out to the James E. Worrall Foundation to 1303 Forest Hill Dr. Perry Georgia and still get a tax write off.

We are working hard to make it legal to have people come in for events and we will be letting you know of anything that comes up.

And please remember that our fundraiser is still going on and that you can get "Save the Muse" bumper stickers at Big Picture Burgers and the Coffee Cup where all the money go to the theatre.

Thanks for being so supportive everyone, have a great day, and keep sharing!
