The vision of the Murray Hill Theater is to provide live Christian entertainment every Friday and Saturday night in an alcohol-free and smoke-free nightclub atmosphere. Most of what we want to provide is live contemporary Christian music or Christian rock music. But we have plays, liturgical dance performances, comedy nights, video nights and open mic nights.The theater is fixed up nice and clean and has a great sound and light system, and it is a great place to hang out. Some events are geared towards a mature, adult audience and some events are geared towards teens. Our target audience is the 16 to 30 year old, but older teens are welcome to come (We are not geared towards pre-teens and ask an adult to accompany any one under 16 years of age who comes). We have a cafe that serves a variety of food and great milkshakes.Murray Hill Theater is operated by a volunteer driven, non-profit organization. Every weekend we provide live Christian entertainment with the goal of reaching out to those who have no understanding of the gospel as well as strengthening and encouraging those who know the Lord Jesus and desire to deepen their walk with Him. We believe it is important for Jacksonville to have an alternative to bars--a place where people can go any Friday or Saturday night for great Christian entertainment, and a place where you can invite un-churched friends to get a taste of Christian music, entertainment, and fellowship. We hope and pray that the theater will be used by Christians as a place for one-on-one friendship evangelism, but we strive to make sure it is not a "religious" place or a place that would turn off non-Christians. We make it very warm, open, and inviting to all people regardless of religious belief or affiliation. It is our desire that the positive music and the one-on-one sharing of our beliefs and values in a loving way will draw people closer to Jesus Christ our Lord.
