About :

To promote an appreciation of and involvement in the arts within the Hayward, Cable and surrounding Northwoods communities.

We view 'arts' to include, but is not limited to, theatre, music, dance, visual arts, film, the written word and multicultural events.

The Park had always been a movie theater, but now it's also a performing arts center.  Opened in 1948, the Park marquee has been a part of Hayward's gateway for 60+ years.  The first movie shown on the Park's fixed screen was "Romance On the High Seas!"  The theater was built in what was known as Whitten Park.  The decor was described as 'decorative modernism'.

Best little theater around that supports the music community wholly. National acts as well as chances for local performers to play on the stage and get their name in lights. Great sound, great crew, great volunteers. Can't say enough good things!

Attended Randy Sabien Xmas Concert. Purchased tickets online without difficulty, tickets were picked up night of concert also without difficulty. Acoustics are what you'd expect from an old, converted movie theater. Staff are volunteers and very friendly. Parking is at nearby lot or nearby at streets.

This is a pretty small movie theater, so there aren't many shows or show-times, and you might have to settle for watching your choice in 3D. That said, the theater was clean and the staff were genial. The slushies my group purchased (different flavors), however, were subpar.
