Information for this tour was contributed by Konrad Schiecke.

According to owner Bud Johnston, the theatre was built as an opera house in 1882. It ran silent movies in the early 1900's and was converted to a twin theatre in the 1980's by then-owner GKC. It has a huge stage house and a pitched roof.
