About

People of all ages enjoy the Grand Theatre by participating on the stage, attending one of the performances, taking a guided tour of the building, renting the building for events, and volunteering their time and money.

The Grand Theatre was designed by Merle F. Baker and was constructed on the foundation of the Keokuk Opera House (Circa 1880) which burned in 1923. It was patterned after theaters in Chicago and was praised as one of the finest theaters in the country at the time.

Presently, The Grand Theatre is owned by the city of Keokuk and is used as a performing arts center. It was purchased by the Grace Bott Millar Estate and donated to the city in 1987. It is independently operated by the Grand Theatre Commission and used by various organizations.
