Market House Theatre is based out of 11 historical buildings located in downtown Paducah. Our facilities embrace their unique history while creating new, useful spaces for today.
141 Kentucky Ave.
While originally a market for farmers to sell produce, the space was transformed into the iconic Market House Theatre in 1963. This revitalized space is the original MHT stage and is perfect for large meetings, weddings & receptions, and performances. In 2020, the lobby was renovated with larger restrooms and a built-in box office space with an outdoor box office. In 2023, the stage received a new LED wall and state-of-the-art theatrical lighting. The current theatre seating allows for 200 people.
