Originally constructed in 1926 as a live theater, it was later converted to movies and then shut down in the mid-1980’s, after which it sat dormant until it was restored and returned to its performing arts roots when it reopened in 2005.

The Sherman theater was built in 1928 and opened in January of 1929. In 1928 a Marr & Colton organ was installed.

A History of the Movie Theaters in Monroe County by Roy E. Pipher has a very detailed history of this theater. The book is available at Carroll & Carroll Bookstore on Main Street in Stroudsburg.

Just passed by the theater while stopping in Stroudsburg this morning for Starbucks on my way back to NYC! This theater has a very handsome new, but traditional, Marquee and is very much still open. Nice surprise!
