Mission and Vision


The mission of the Egyptian Theatre Preservation Association is to renovate, preserve and operate the historic Egyptian Theatre as a performing arts and entertainment center and to improve the economic vitality and quality of life of the community by offering programs of cultural and educational value.



The purpose of the Egyptian Theatre Preservation Association, a nonprofit corporation, is to restore, maintain, operate and preserve the historic Egyptian Theatre, 229 South Broadway, Coos Bay, Oregon, subject to the limitations stated in this Association’s nonprofit status, granted under the provisions of Chapter 65 of the Oregon Revised Statutes and Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. The ETPA’s nonprofit status was effective on March 16, 2006 by the State of Oregon, and on May 16, 2006 by the Internal Revenue Service, respectively.  The ETPA is an equal opportunity employer.



We envision generations to come walking down Broadway and seeing an operational and vibrant Egyptian Theatre that beckons people downtown from the broader community.

The theater will provide a multi-use community gathering place where people can have fun and participate in a living part of local history.
