The Grand’s vision is to be the anchor cultural organization for Downeast and Eastern Maine by presenting exciting and diverse programs of highest possible quality including film, music, theater and children’s education. Our commitment to the highest possible quality includes stewardship of the historically significant Grand Theater—a cultural landmark in the center of Ellsworth, Maine. Our profile in the community and region will be marked not only by the quality and breadth of our programs, but also by the inclusive, welcoming and professional environment we create for our members, performing artists, audiences, staff and volunteers. It will be widely known throughout the region that there is always something “great” going on at The Grand. It will be widely felt by all who come in contact with us that The Grand is more than your usual theater, but is a gathering place for meeting friends, forming community, and fulfilling the artistic and cultural yearnings within us all.
