This is indeed the “Grand Opera House” that was mentioned in the 1897-98 edition of the Julius Cahn Official Theatrical Guide. The theatre underwent an extensive volunteer-driven renovation between 1985 and 1994. This year, we celebrate its 15th season of continuous programming since the reopening.
Many people remember and comment on the bats that populated the theatre in the 1970s when it operated as the Winter Garden movie theatre. While the theatre still presents movies in addition to live events, the bats, fortunately, are gone now.
Thank you, Patsy, for your kind comments about “The Queen of Bingo.” It was a fun show to present. Watch for more shows like it in the upcoming season. You can see all of our upcoming events at www.fredopera.org
