Yes, the “G” stands for Ghossen, the family who built it.

Shortest name i have heard of, for a picture theatre! Does the G stand for anything?

The G Theatre is currently being minor restored keeping things mostly original. It’s getting some brighter vintage paint colors. Has been upgraded to digital! There is great expense in preserving an old Theatre open or not. The G Theatre will show again, hang in there!

From what I’ve heard, the new owner lives in the theater and it is definitely closed.

Status should be closed. No info on web or Facebook page. Phone disconnected. Movies are shown at the Mossyrock Community Center, tho.

The nearest theater is the Roxy Theater in Morton, Washington. That’s about 15 miles east of Mossyrock.

Booth is extremely crowded with that platter.

Not sure how they fit a platter in that booth??? I meant to add that there is a balcony, very small.

I worked at this theater in the 70’s for several years as a projectionist. The sound system was just awful! The projection equipment had numerous issues as well. It was fun to operate the carbon arch lamphouses though. We always kept the lights dimmed at the lowest possible setting as the place was so rundown. The curtain was not operational either. I remember we barely kept the place open, it was ‘rarely’ busy. This was before video too! I am sure this theater did nto have 350 seats! The 270 as quoted above is more accurate. If anyone has any questions regarding this theater please ask away. There is no cry room in this theater.

The “G” in the theater’s name is from the Ghosen family who built it and operated it until 1990 or so.

Schedule is Friday, Saturday, and Monday only. There are no shows on Sunday as this is a Mormon town. Yes, there is a tiny balcony. There is a cry room but it is converted to theater manager’s office. Bathrooms are very tiny. Theater was built around 1936 and is equipped with Century “C” projector heads and RCA 1040 soundheads. Was lit with carbon arc lamphouses, but in 2002 converted to xenon (Strong Super Lume-x lamphouses).

Oh, according to a May 22, 2006, story in The Chronicle newspaper of Centralia, Wash., the theater was built in the late 1930s. It has a balcony.
