Help save The Isis Theatre

The Isis Theatre—An Historic Theatre Revived  

Downtown Cowtown at the Isis is primed to become the premiere provider of quality live theatrical performances, movies and entertainment located in the Historic Stockyards of Fort Worth. Originally designed and opened in 1914, we are set to return this beautiful building to its original luster. The renovation boasts a 500-seat house along with an upscale restaurant/bar and gift shop for its patrons. The target market is any fan of Fort Worth, music, comedy, stage performances, movies and entertainment. The Isis offers family events appealing to cowboys and cowgirls of all ages. The theatre will take you back in time with its ambiance, but it will give you some of the greatest acoustic and "stripped down" performances guaranteed to wow every week. Additional opportunities are available through movies running daily that stay true to the authentic world of the Fort Worth Stockyards. Attendees at all functions will also be afforded the opportunity to shop a variety of souvenir offerings in the gift shop or to simply enjoy a beverage at the bar. Additional functions are happening year round, available through our collaboration with film festivals, Stock Shows and Rodeos, and other community events in the area.  


As you can see, there is a lot of work to be done to get this building back to the greatness it once was.  This campaign is a small amount--we are not asking for all of the funds needed to revitalize this building.  We simply want the community to be included in our process--to be a part of the renovation.  It is a limited opportunity to be a part of our journey.  With your contribution, you will be helping preserve a great piece of Fort Worth History!

The Isis Theatre has a rich history, one we are committed to preserving for years to come, and we are ready to begin.  Downtown Cowtown at the Isis is looking to the community at large to share in the saving of this beautiful building, to have a hand in the salvage process, and we are looking to the GoFundMe community as the best vehicle for that to occur.  The Isis theatre has been standing dormant since the early 80's, and everyone has wanted to see this beautiful building come back to life. Here is how you can be a part of history.  All of the proceeds from this campaign are dedicated to the revival of this great building.  This is only a small portion, but every little bit counts!  

Your contributions will not go unnoticed.  Your name will be enshrined for all to see that you helped bring this building back to life.  We have created a Wall of Fame for all contributors.  Your name will be seen by all the visitors world wide that come to see this great establishment.  Whether attending a concert or event, or simply touring the facility to see its rich history, your small contribution to our project will make a big difference.
