COLLINSVILLE – The Historic Miner’s Institute has been included in the 2015 membership of the League of Historic American Theatres, a list that also includes all the major New York City Broadway houses operated by Disney, Nederlander, Shubert and Jujamcyn.
As a league member, the Miner’s Institute staff will have access to professional development opportunities and national media attention and will be able to attend the National Conference of Historic Theatres taking place in Nashville this summer.
“I am delighted to include the Historic Miner’s Institute as a member of the League,” said Ken Stein, executive director for LHAT.
“We constantly showcase the important contributions being made in arts and preservation from historic theaters throughout North America, and it will be great to include the contributions from Collinsville.”
The League champions the preservation, restoration and ongoing operations of historic theaters across the United States and Canada. The Historic Miner’s Institute is among the distinguished list of theaters that have proven to be economic drivers and cultural cornerstones in communities across the nation.
