Chuck Mathena Center

2 Stafford Commons
Princeton, WV 24740


The Chuck Mathena Center is a multi million dollar, 44,000 sq. ft. regional performing-visual arts and rental venue. 

The 1000 seat theatre hosts state of the art sound, with perfect sight lines to the stage from each of the comfortable roomy seats.  The CMC is a 501 C 3 Non-Profit Organization.

Mission And Vision:
The mission of the Chuck Mathena Center is to serve the southern West Virginia and southwestern Virginia region by providing the greater community with a venue that offers a variety of cultural, educational, and theatrical events, while also providing the community a forum for gatherings and special functions.  The Center is intended to promote a sense of ownership and partnership among all citizens of the community and surrounding area and welcome them by way of a diverse and active programming and event schedule.

The goal of the Chuck Mathena Center is to foster the appreciation of the arts to the underserved sector of the state of West Virginia, and to provide a culturally diverse array of opportunities to all members of the community including our students, senior citizens, and disabled population.  This facility is intended to enhance the cultural life of the region, and to have a positive economic impact on the state. It is our sincerest hope that we can utilize the many facets of the community to foster growth not only in the arts, but our community as a whole.
