The Historic Wilma Building

Ownership of the history Wilma Building changed hands in late 2007 and the new owner/developers have spared no expense at bringing this Missoula centerpiece back to its original glory.

Built in 1921, the Wilma Theater was often referred to as the “Showplace of Montana” and that moniker continues today as a new breath of life has entered the building. The Wilma’s history book continues to grow as the residential apartment units that have long occupied this building’s top floors have now been converted into residential condominium spaces. New condo owners are updating and restoring their units in a building-wide effort to honor the spirit and history of the building.

In addition to what has been happening in the residential tower, a landmark fine dining establishment, Scotty’s Table, has moved into the building at the park level. “Scotty’s” regularly receives raving reviews from the people who dine there and visiting the restaurant or wine bar is a must-do on the list of anyone who stays at the Wilma.

If that wasn’t enough, the new Wilma building owners are also in the process of remodeling the entire inside and out of the historic Wilma Theater, home to the largest indoor film screen and the largest hand-painted ceiling in the state. This beautifully ornate Louis XIV style theatre seats over 1000 visitors and is one of the best places in the Northwest to enjoy a movie, a play, or a musical acts that span nearly every genre.
