Opened in 1922, a wonderful theater – one in which the audience faces the lobby! One enters next to the screen. Theater is complete with “crying room”.

This is a 2007 photo. It looks like a ghost town.

The community is currently undergoing a massive, inside/outside renovation – and might open up this fall (2013) – as headquarters for the Pine Bluff Film Festival as well as for live concerts and shows.

This wont be opening until 2014. I stopped by in Sept 2013 and it was still a shell.
