The 750-seat Grove Theatre was originally built as a majestic movie palace in 1926. It was closed during the Depression, reopened on October 3, 1930 with Ginger Rogers in “Queen High” & Harry Gribbon in “A Hollywood Star”. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ. It was closed during World War II and following a remodel to the plans of architect Alfred Browning Parker, it reopened as the Coconut Grove Playhouse on June 3, 1956 as a performing arts center with Samuel Beckett’s play “Waiting for Godot”. The theater later converted to two stages for live theater use.
The theater closed in April of 2006 and its future is uncertain.
