The newly renovated Tybee Post Theater is located in the heart of the Fort Screven Historic District at the north end of Tybee Island. Built in 1930 by the U.S. Army as a movie house, it closed its doors in the mid-1960s and stood vacant for 50 years. The Tybee Island Historical Society purchased it in 2001 and spearheaded the creation of the Friends of Tybee Theater, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring the Post Theater and operating it as a performing arts and movie venue for Tybee residents and visitors.

After 15 years and a nearly $2 million investment, the Tybee Post Theater reopened its doors with a Grand Opening celebration in September 2015. Through the Fall it has presented a variety of programming, including live music, comedy and theatrical productions. State-of-the art sound, lighting and projection systems are scheduled to be installed in February making the Theater fully operational.
