Town Hall Arts Center

Littleton boasts it very own Town Hall Arts Center. Designed by prominent Colorado architect Jacques Benedict and built in 1920 as a new center for civic activities, the building contained city offices, a community meeting room (where the theatre is located today), a jail out back (where the loading dock now is) and the volunteer fire department (the trucks were parked in what is the lobby, and the reason that lobby floor still slopes).
By the late 1970s there was a new City Hall on Berry Street, and some visionary citizens began to ponder the fate of the old building in the center of Main Street. Through a lot of fund-raising and hard work, in 1983, it opened as a performing arts center and art gallery.

Today, the theatre is managed by a non-profit organization, The Littleton Town Hall Arts Center, Inc., doing business as Town Hall Arts Center. The Foundation has produced 10-12 professional events a year, and offered professionally staffed, multi-cultural events to school children through the popular Actor’s Playground. In all, there are close to 150 performances presented each year, individual art shows in the Stanton Gallery, plus many community meetings in its facilities.
