Welcome to the GrandWorks Foundation

Reach, Restore, and Revive our Community

The GrandWorks Foundation is a community-based, non-profit organization tasked with the revitalization, operation and maintenance of the Gloria Theatre in Urbana, Ohio. The Gloria Theatre is a 500 seat, multi-purpose entertainment, business and community center.

The Vision

to redevelop and transform the former Urbana Twin Cinemas into the Gloria Theatre – a platform for social, spiritual, cultural, and economic growth for Urbana and Champaign county



No performing arts venue and event center can continue to exist without the loyal support of the community. The GrandWorks Foundation is extraordinarily lucky to have the faith of the generous companies, organizations and individuals that appear to the side. Please patronize these fine institutions and thank them for supporting your Gloria Theatre!
