Interesting information on the Brokaw 1 & 2 Facebook page. The architect was A.M. Strauss. Brokaw 1 & 2 opened in 1931 and is now closed for remodeling.

I prefer to see movies in old theaters like this; however, I can’t find information online about what is currently showing at the Brokaw. The website on the top of this page does not work. Since I live between Angola & Coldwater, I usually end up going to the modern theater in Coldwater. I REALLY want old theaters to survive, so I would urge them to at least modernize their online presence to survive in today’s market.

Michelle_ahs79 Do you have any photos of the original Brokaw entrance? We are preparing to restore the Brokaw and would love to see what it was originally like.

This theatre has been in my husband’s family since 1932 when it opened. It was twined in October/November of 1990. It holds so many memories since meeting my future husband in 1979 and a lifetime of memories for my husband.
