Welcome to the Marfa Public Library

Gary Oliver in the renovated cinema, March 2023

We are so proud to share that we have completed renovations to our library theater, supported by a grant from the Catherine Dumraese Trust. We have a new screen, new HVAC, new surround sound, new sound proofing, new paint, and even a cool little entryway with a curtain.

We are so grateful to The Catherine Dumraese Trust for their generosity and support, and huge thank you to Francisco Rosas and 7M for their work on the project.

And if you didn’t know, our kind and dedicated board president, Gary Oliver (pictured here, testing out the new equipment), hosts regular movie nights in the theater. Always free, always open to all. If you’d like to be on Gary’s movie list, shoot us an email, or if you have ideas for film screenings, let us know. 💗

Note: Marfa Public Library has MPLC and Swank Public Performance Site licenses for screening films. Email us if you have any questions.
