Everett Theatre

47 West Main Street, Middletown, Delaware, United States

Scene where Neil’s dream comes true. He stars as Puck in a local production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Scene was shot The Everett Theatre debuted on November 9, 1922. It was designed by noted theater architects W.H. Hoffman and Paul J. Henon, Jr. The Philadelphia architectural firm was known for its
theater designs—100 theaters in total, 46 of them in Philadelphia alone. From the day it first opened, the Everett was a favorite place for everyone in the area to enjoy new motion pictures or
vaudeville stage performances. Generations of Middletown area residents enjoyed the special experience of seeing a movie in a distinguished movie house. The Everett Theatre was beloved by many. That fact didn’t always
protect it from societal pressures. As televisions and state-of-the-art movie theaters and shopping malls all took away the Everett’s potential audience, it fell on hard times. In 1983, a group of
concerned citizens formed the Associated Community Talents, Inc., a nonprofit organization, to purchase the Everett Theatre and restore it. Associated Community Talents, Inc. evolved into
The Everett, Inc. That nonprofit operates both the Everett Theatre and The Gibby Center for the Arts.
