Opened May 5, 1937, built with stadium style seating (an uncommon luxury for the time), the Grand Theatre had a reputation, at least in the 1980’s, of being absolutely immaculate, even including such non-public areas as the theatre’s basement and boiler room. The man who kept it that way was supposedly named Wally Kemp. The Grand Theatre was closed in 1986 and it was thought that would be the end of its life.
It was rescued by a community group of volunteers, who over the years have restored the building back to its original splendour, especialy in their restoration of the splendid Art Deco style facade which had been rendered over.
