Mission Statement

To provide fantastic customer service, while providing a safe and comfortable environment for patrons to have a wonderful experience at The Hemmens Cultural Center while enjoying fabulous entertainment!

Description

Located in the Center City area along the banks of Elgin’s award-winning Riverwalk, The Hemmens Cultural Center is the cornerstone of Elgin’s growing arts community. This intimate 1,200-seat theatre is a favorite venue for seeing stars up close. Since 1969, audiences have been treated to such names as B. B. King , Bob Newhart , Phil Vassar , Garrison Keillor , Bill Cosby , The Ides of March , Blue Oyster Cult and many more. Currently our events calendar is more understated with The Annual Elgin Short Film Festival, TalentFest, Elgin Celebrates the Holidays, Elgin Summer Theatre, First Fridays Improv with GreenRoom Productions and a few programs for kids/field trips as well.

Attending a performance at The Hemmens is an experience not to be missed; clear sightlines and wide aisles provide an unparalleled concert and theatre-going experience where patrons get the sense of sitting in a luxury suite. Even the balcony’s level of comfort and proximity to the stage rivals that of many other venues’ 'club level seating’.
