MISSION: Friends of the Tybee Theater, Inc., is a 501 (3) (c) non-profit corporation formed in 2001 and dedicated to restoring and operating the Tybee Post Theater as a performing arts and cultural center that is an integral part of the island community, enhances the cultural experience, encourages and attracts visitors, and improves the overall quality of life.

Located in the Fort Screven Historic District, the theater, built in 1930, served as a military movie house during World War II, attracting notable patrons. After the war, the base became surplus, and the theater faced abandonment until the City of Tybee Island intervened in 1999, preventing demolition. Friends of the Tybee Theater, formed in 2001, spearheaded a restoration mission, securing funds, including a $350,000 SPLOST funding in 2008. By 2012, with loans, grants, and community support, the organization finalized plans for the auditorium's restoration, marking a 15-year journey to revive this historic treasure.
