News About This Theater
- Oct 6, 2014 — Coyle Theater Fundraiser
It was a quaint little theatre where you went in the Monongahela Valley to see a movie if you didn’t feel like driving 25 miles to the nearest larger theatres in Greensburg, Uniontown or West Mifflin. Opened as the Opera House on September 14, 1892 with a play titled “Killarney and the Rhine”. It was renamed Coyle Theatre by 1920. Alterations were made in 1922 and again in 1934. It was restored and reopened in the 1980’s but was later closed.
There is currently a crusade underway to help restore the theatre by the Mid Mon Valley Cultural Trust. First they must raise $65,000 to own the building and then anticipate a cost of at least $2 million to restore it. They would like to have live shows and movies take place there as well as have a community cultural center.
It was announced in July 2019 that demolition is planned for the Coyle Theatre. Demolition happened in November 2019.
