Warner Theatre in Morgantown to Close
MORGANTOWN, WV — The Warner Theatre in Morgantown, WV has closed as of Sept. 5, 2010.
“The theater was actually opened June 12th 1931 and it cost $400,000. And originally built by the Warner Brothers, her in Morgantown. And the first show that was shown, I believe, was the Millionaire. And the lines were out the door and around the block. This was the center of activity in Morgantown, for a long time,” said Ron Davis, Warner Theater General Manager.
