The Avenal Theatre was destroyed by a fire just after 8:00 pm on Saturday, November 8, 2003. The fire appears to have started in the marquee.

The theater was rebuilt and reopened in 2010, but faltering attendance closed the theater in 2016 and now the city operates it primarily as a multipurpose venue.
