Saturday September 13th, 2014 7:30 pm - Stuart Mossman: A Modern Stradivari
We are excited to host the first public screening (outside of festivals) of the film about Winfield's own Stuart Mossman, Luthier extraordinaire! Featuring the likes of Walnut Valley Festival favorite Beppe Gambetta, David (in his last film), Keith and Bobby Carradine and members of Stuart's family. The Winfield trolley will be running to and from the Fairgrounds to the theatre so those camping for the Walnut Valley Festival will be able to come to the event without worrying about transportation. Enjoy the opportunity to visit with members of the Mossman family. Have a great evening and support the Marquee.
We are still without seats in the theatre, so please, bring the best seat in the house - your own! If you have your own Mossman Guitar, please bring it and show it off. We are hoping to have some very special Mossman Guitars at the theatre for this event. Tickets are $7.00. Pop, beer, wine and freshly popped popcorn will be available at our concession stand (those buying alcohol will be asked for ID). DVDs of Stuart Mossman: A Modern Stradivari will be available for purchase.

Irish Christmas in America, The Show (2014)
We are excited and proud to announce that Irish Christmas in America, The Show will start in Winfield KS on November 22nd, 2014. Those who braved the weather to come to the 2013 performance enjoyed themselves immensely. This year, we expect the weather will be much more favorable so that we can show these wonderful Irish musicians just how great a Winfield crowd can truly be. Treat yourself and your friends and family to a wonderful night out. We will be offering some extra special options for this event, so check back often for those announcements.
More details and more events will be coming soon. Keep coming back to check on what's happening with the Marquee Performing Arts Center.
Star Search at the Cowley County Fair
We had a great event on July 31st. Star Search had 11 wonderfully talented contestants who delighted the audience with their vocal and instrumental abilities. Judge's Choice was Sabrina Wilson, Runner Up was Bryleigh Ish and People's Choice was Faith Moore. Wonderfully talented youngsters!
Marquee, Inc., was formed in March, 2005 as a non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation governed by a Board of Directors. The theatre building was donated to the group by B&B Theatre, who had purchased the former Fox Theatre building in 1980, and in 2004 moved their operations from Arkansas City and Winfield to Strother Field.
After several years of preliminary rehabilitation, we have launched an intensive capital campaign to enable Marquee Performing Arts Center to become a reality in downtown Winfield. When completed, the facility will provide unique opportunities to respect our cherished arts tradition and build upon it in new and exciting ways! Please take a few moments to explore our website and dream with us as we bring Movies, Music and More back to downtown Winfield.
