Over the years the Waterville Opera House has hosted the finest touring performances available. It was also the site for first-run movies. In 1973 the Waterville Opera House Improvement Association was founded. Since then more than $1 million has been raised locally to renovate and upgrade the historic facility. The Waterville Opera House now produces some of the finest regional theater in Maine.

The Waterville Opera House's Studio Theater revives a coffeehouse atmosphere with live folk and acoustic music in downtown Waterville. Some of the most enduring names in folk music play these special evenings.
