ABOUT US

Our Mission

The Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 2008 to secure the future of the iconic 1929 theatre in downtown Rome.
We are committed to preserve the tradition and legacy that is the Jewel of Broad Street. It is our mission to usher the movie house that introduced us to “talkies” into the age of “selfies” and social media.
Next year, the DeSoto Theatre will celebrate 90 years of downtown entertainment, and stand alone as the archetype of Rome’s once thriving arts district.
