Who Are We?

The purpose of the MTA shall be to renovate, administer, and promote the Majestic Theater in Downtown Pottsville (209 North Centre Street). While the primary use of the Majestic Theater will be for performances of the performing arts, the MTA will strive to recruit all socially responsible uses of the facility for the community. The MTA shall further endeavor to create a positive economic impact that will enhance the ability of downtown Pottsville and the surrounding community, to preserve and grow in a natural and socially responsible manner, taking into account the needs and interests of their diverse populations.

The MTA shall strive to achieve its purpose by:

A. Developing and promoting performing arts presentations at the Majestic Theater that will appeal to residents and nonresidents alike;

B. Developing and promoting a cinema-style program that will appeal to a wide-range of social and economic groups;

C. Working in conjunction with other civic, ethnic, and social organizations to encourage and sponsor various community activities at the Majestic Theater complex;

D. Working with the local community governments or quasi-public organizations to provide a facility to accommodate town meetings or public debates;

E. Working with educational organizations and schools to foster education in the arts, history, and other subjects via lectures and performances; to include audiences from elementary ages through senior citizens. This also applies to those audiences requiring special needs;

F. Working with neighboring businesses and residences to encourage the mutual economic and aesthetic growth of Downtown Pottsville;
