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

Welcome to The Gloria Theatre & GrandWorks Foundation

Reach, Restore, and Revive our Community


The GrandWorks Foundationis 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.


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 below. Please patronize these fine institutions and thank them for supporting your Gloria Theatre!
