The Miller Theatre In Augusta

Welcome to the home of NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet in Augusta: the Miller Theater! The Miller Theater was a former movie theater and vaudeville house. The Miller was built by architect Roy A. Benjamin utilizing the Arte Moderne style of architecture and was owned by Frank Miller. Due to an economic downturn in the 1980s in downtown Augusta, the theater was forced to close. It sat dormant until 2005 when it was purchased by local Augusta businessman and entrepreneur Peter S. Knox IV. The renovation project, which has spanned more than seven years and cost nearly $25 million, is a testament to the volunteers and donors who believed there was real worth in not only preserving an important piece of Augusta history, but also providing its symphony orchestra a permanent home and the community a state-of-the-art venue designed with a variety of artists and stage performances in mind.  The theater reopened on January 6, 2018 to a sold out gala featuring Sutton Foster performing with Augusta Symphony.
