About the theatre

The Everett Theatre opened in 1922 and, nearing its 100-year anniversary, remains the area’s cultural center for cinema and performing arts. The Everett’s stage is home to Broadway series productions, children’s theater and one of the largest movie screens on the Delmarva Peninsula.
