About

Located in downtown Missoula, Montana, The Wilma has anchored the Missoula cultural and entertainment scene for almost 100 years.

Constructed in 1921 as a vaudeville house, The Wilma has been utilized as a movie house for the majority of its history. In the 1980s, The Wilma began to once again host live entertainment.

In March of 2015, The Wilma was acquired by new ownership. The new owners immediately commenced work on a major renovation and restoration of the historic theater, investing in entirely new infrastructure, renovated stage, first class entertainer accommodations and one of the best sound systems in the Western United States. As a result of the remodel, The Wilma has become a state-of-the-art facility within a spectacular historic building.

The Wilma is a locally owned and independently operated venue. The owners of the Wilma also own the Top Hat Lounge, a 550 capacity room, one block from The Wilma.
