    For over a decade, Wind Down Friday has served as a successful catalyst for our fundraising efforts as well as community revitalization within the City Center. With the loss of our outdoor space coupled with the competition of similar Wind Down events throughout the four-state region, the event series is no longer a sustainable program for our organization to host. Therefore, the Theatre has decided to end our Wind Down event series.

    The Theatre will focus on hosting new Arts & Entertainment programming in our beautiful historic auditorium as well as exciting educational and business events in the new function spaces. Additionally, the Theatre will be exploring opportunities to present or participate with our various partnerships to host outdoor programming that will continue to draw the community and visitors to our City Center.

    As we reflect on the past decade of Wind Down, we like to take a moment to thank all the supporters of Wind Down events and the Theatre for your continued partnership.  We are excited for the next decade of programming and encourage you to reach out to Theatre leadership or staff with new ideas for future events during this time of growth and prosperity.

    Exterior Image- Night- FINAL

    The Maryland Theatre Association, Inc. is currently constructing a 30,000 square foot expansion which will restore The Theatre to its original footprint prior to the fire which destroyed the front of the building in the early 1970’s.

    The expansion will replace a current outdoor courtyard and will consist of 5 floors total in order to transform The Maryland Theatre, the crown jewel of Hagerstown’s A&E District into a Performing Arts Complex. Construction will take place in 3 phases: phase 1: the auditorium will be closed July-September 2018 during alley, utility and new emergency egress work completion. Phase 2: the auditorium will be fully operational with egress via the Middletown Valley Bank Walkway (see signage upon arrival) October 2018-June 2019. Phase 3: the auditorium will be closed July-September 2019 with a ribbon cutting planned for October 2019.  Visit for more information.
