The Warner Theatre Preservation Trust is looking for donors to help restore and expand this unique building. The campaign has tremendous support from local business, government and individuals. Perhaps you are a former Erieite or a theatre buff who loves the old structures. This campaign would like to hear from you. If you have an old story about your experience in the building, please share it with us and consider giving to this worthwhile cause. Any amount is greatly appreciated.


The Seat and Star Campaigns memorialize your gift through the following opportunities:

  • $200 donation buys a new seat for the Warner with your name etched on a plaque mounted on the seat.
  • $500 donation offers acknowledgment with a 10-inch aluminum star in the French Street wall.
  • $3,000 donation offers acknowledgment with a 10-inch bronze star imbedded in the State Street sidewalk in front of the Warner.
