| Street View

Built in 1938, this large, single-screen theater has an unusually large balcony.

A new Simplex projector and Super 80 Lamphouse and DTS digital sound system were recently installed. The Simplex is only the second projector to grace the Huish’s projection booth. The theater’s original E-7 projector is now on display in the lobby.

On the theater’s facade, there is a large vertical blade sign that spells out ‘H-U-I-S-H’ and it is currently being renovated by YESCO Sign Company.

It was remodeled in 2010.

SLIGHT NAME CHANGE: Huish REEL is how the sign now reads. A lighted box sign with the word REEL has been added below the Huish neon sign. Huish Enterprizes opened the theatre and Reel Theatres took over the theatre sometime between 2000 and 2003.

I love the huish theater. It was the only theater I knew growing up. It was recently gutted and turned into a 3 plex. there are 2 theaters in the original auditorium and the 3rd is the old balcony. There is a lot of history in this building and in the very back of the building behind a door in the emergency exit hallway, is a large room that has the original stage and screen with some art deco decorations which was walled over in the 80s. I’m glad they kept this part from being gutted like the rest of the theater.
