COOS BAY, OR — The 1925 Egyptian Theatre here will celebrate eighty-five years of entertaining folks in this south coast town. Now operated as a city-owned, not-for-profit, the theater will host celebration events on November 19 & 20.

Rick Shearer says he and his fellow board members hope for a big turnout for the weekend birthday bash.

“There are very few historic theaters left, and for this town to have a 1925 movie theater is pretty incredible,” Shearer says.

The story, with a short video, is at KNTR.com.

I hope the city returned it to its original state rather than the cut up version left by the former owner.

According to the information on the theater’s official website, restoration is ongoing; the two balcony level screening rooms have been removed and the balcony has been restored.
