Help us raise $24M to restore and refurbish the Mercury Theatre.

Join us in a mission to revive the historic Mercury Theatre! Our goal is to raise $24M.

The project is broken down into two stages. Stage 1 is $14M to earthquake strengthen the Theatre and bring it up to current building standards. Stage 2 is an additional $10M to complete the full restoration and fit out.

Let's preserve 114 years of cherished memories and ensure future generations share in the magic.
