About Us

The Farr Best Theater is a gem of Mansfield history. Recently purchased by the City of Mansfield, the theater is undergoing a transformation and revitalization. An intimate, 158-seat venue in historic downtown Mansfield, the Farr Best hosts movies, shows, and a variety of community events.  It was built in 1917, and still retains much of the original historic charm.
