Take a look at Missoula’s Wilma Theatre the next time you’re staying at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast. The Wilma was built in 1921 by William Simons (and named after his wife Edna Wilma) to house his Wild West Show, and it’s a spectacular example of 1920’s architecture. Today it is stands magnificently in the heart of downtown Missoula, a beacon after dark with its hundreds of flashing lights.
Not many Wild West shows are performed at the Wilma Theatre these days, but it is still one of the places to go in Missoula for entertainment and special events. It is home to the largest indoor screen in Montana – a great spot to see films. And many performers love to play the Wilma because of the theatre’s history and beauty.
Upcoming special events include performances by Sara Bareilles on July 15, Gillian Welch on July 17. and Steel Pulse on July 19, 2011. When there are no special events on the calendar, many guests of our Montana Bed and Breakfast enjoy films at the Wilma. Two films are showing this week: Woody Allen’s latest, Midnight in Paris, and Buck, a stirring portrait of a real horse-whisperer.
If nothing else, we hope you’ll stroll past the Wilma on a warm summer evening.
