These guys are just amazing.”

The Historic Milford Theater, located at 114 East Catharine Street in the heart of Milford’s historic district, first opened its doors in the early 1900’s and was home to many in the vaudeville circuit. Built for theatrical performances, the Theater hosted many performers post-vaudville era, including the traveling theater groups that performed all over the Poconos and the Catskills – Summer Stock. Shortly thereafter it was home to film and many new, old and indie movies were shown. Currently, the Theater is a multi-cultural venue for films including the Black Bear Film Festival; a wide range of music across all genres indicative of performances by Michael Patrick’s Ring of Fire Band, Terri Dixon’s performances of Patsy Cline and the various other artists that have crossed the stage; and theatrical productions such as the late October opening of The Little Shop of Horrors. This 300-seat theater is a cultural center built to enrich the lives of all those that live in and around the community with all forms of entertainment.
