Corner Theatre

Overview


  • The Corner Theatre is currently closed for renovation.  It will reopen as a black box theater in summer of 2018.  The Corner Theatre was initially constructed in 1996 following a City Council directive to develop a multi-use auditorium for the community's use.  It is operated by the City of DeSoto.

Parking


Free parking for all Corner Theatre activities is available in the multi-level parking garage in Town Center. The garage can be entered from Hampton Road or Pleasant Run Road. Once you've parked, exit the parking garage to the Town Center Courtyard and you'll see the Corner Theatre's green awning beckoning you to the theatre.
