Previous Names: Sam S. Shubert Theater
The Shubert Theater was built inside what was originally the city’s original YMCA (which opened in 1848). The theater opened on September 25, 1921 with the play “The Passing Show”. It remained a venue for legitimate theatrical performances for many years. The Shubert Theater switched to a combined use venue for movies and stage shows in 1935.
The theater was closed in 1953 and reopened as Rev. Earl Ivies' Revival Temple.
Just two years later, however, the Shubert Theater was renovated and once again returned to legitimate theater. It was closed on March 23, 1975 with a magic stage show. In 1976, the Shubert Theater was demolished to make way for a parking lot. Today, there is an office building on the site.
