A huge thank you to DHTV for their amazing work with the videos and the contributions to our theater. Check them out at https://dhtvdigital.com.

The Aztec Theater will be one of the most beautiful, single screen theaters in the area, with a total seating capacity of approximately 250. Visitors will witness firsthand the “golden age” of movies through vintage and classic film showings. The “movie palace” experience will be an integral part of all activities at the Aztec Theater. Upon completion, the Aztec Group plans to make arrangements to get The Aztec Theater on the National Register of Historic Places. Aztec Group LLC anticipates that in ten years the restoration and reopening of the Aztec Theater will be considered a turning point in the community’s history.  This entire restoration project will be a community effort.  If you would like to help, please CLICK HERE.

The City of Shawnee is kicking off a fun contest that could land you extra cash to spend in downtown Shawnee – including Calkins Electric! We know the Nieman Now! construction is putting some businesses in a bind from time to time, so we are launching “Shawbucks” in an effort to get more customers downtown. 

So how does it work? It’s easy! Just look for the Shawbucks sign to find out if a business is participating or check out the full list below. Then, as you’re shopping or grabbing a bite to eat, fill out an entry slip to have a chance at winning $25 in Shawbucks. We’ll draw four winners at a time, twice a month. If you win, you can spend your Shawbucks at any of the participating businesses. There is no purchase necessary. We are excited to launch Shawbucks and will be continuing the contest until Nieman Now! is all wrapped up!
