Campus Theatre
Georgia College & State University

The Campus Theatre is typical of the Art Deco-style theatres that were once ubiquitous in towns throughout the southeastern United States. It opened in 1935 and served as a traditional performance hall for nearly half a century before closing in 1983. The building fell into disrepair, and stood mostly empty until Garbutt | Christman was chosen to perform a due diligence study and subsequently, the restoration and adaptive reuse of this historic building. In collaboration with Dunwody/Beeland Architects, Garbutt | Christman revived this property for Georgia College & State University’s Performing Arts Department in historic Milledgeville, Georgia.
