Madcap Theaters - Closed

730 S. Mill Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281 | Tempe | 480-634-5192

Location Description:

After Harkins moved out of the theater space on Mill Avenue for fancier digs at nearby Tempe Marketplace, the Downtown Tempe Community (DTC) moved in and created the Mill Avenue District Community Arts Project (or MADCAP), which sought to reinvigorate the area through the reopening of this multi-purpose theater space. Since, they've brought in independent screenings, and regular shows by Cult Classics, a regular film series run by Victor Moreno. Tickets are around $10.
