At approximately 180,000 square feet, the building houses 2 theatres, meeting rooms, a grand ballroom as well as numerous other rooms and areas. Over time, the Masonic Fraternity realized the need to utilize the facility in other collaborative ways, and a grass roots effort was launched to form a not-for-profit organization. The Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple (SCCMT) remains dedicated to the preservation and improvement of the structure, and to provide an ongoing programming resource for the community.
The unique partnership of the communities of Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Masonic Fraternity has proven successful and beneficial to all parties. Today, the SCCMT operates the facility as a regional performance and cultural hub. The Center serves as the residence for national tours of Broadway musicals and concerts, and hosts a variety of many other national and regional artists. It also has kept to its earliest purposes by continuing to serve as the center of Masonic activity in the region.
The Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple's mission is to rejuvenate a national architectural treasure as a regional center for the arts, education and community activity appealing to all. We are also committed to offering arts integrated experiences to our regional school districts, home school groups and charter schools as well as the community at large.
