The Museum celebrates the rich cultural legacy of the four Warner Brothers; their impact on film and the rich culture of this nation. It accomplishes this mission by presenting displays, film series, special events, student field trips, and numerous other events that fulfill the Warner legacy in keeping with their initial goals of Entertaining - Educating and Enlightening. The Museum accomplishes its mission in the actual historic structure in which the Warners opened their very first theatre - The Cascade - on February 2, 1907.

Programs Supported by Your Donations
The current focus of the Museum is the development and display of recognized Actors and Actresses immortalized in Warner Brothers Films. It will also include those whose careers evolved at other studios. The time span considered will be from early silent films through the golden age of film and up to those recognized in current careers. The display will include photos and biographies of each subject along with a list of prominent film roles. This new display will join the initial history of the Warner Family presented in the Red Carpet lobby which also features a display of Superheroes In Film; both already proven to be favorites of those visiting the Museum.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
The Museum was hindered in offering tours, film events, and private celebrations during the two-year Covid shut down. While requests were submitted to various governmental and private sources, support was almost nonexistent due to the fact that most offerings were the first of their kind to be offered and had no previous track record and therefore no ability to generate actual funding.
