The Great Falls Civic Center building was built in the 1930s and opened its doors to the public thanks to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt presidential order and funding from Congress as a part of the Emergency Relief Appropriation Act of 1935.

The program focused on providing jobs through building public buildings and projects, roadways, and similar, as well as creating and running large arts, drama, literacy, and media projects the nation over, particularly in rural and western mountain regions.

The beautiful theater continues with performances in the civic center, as well as community events, privately rented events, and more – with every kind of community event you could hope to attend while in Great Falls.
