Grand Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Grand Theater in Fargo, North Dakota opened in 1906 as a vaudeville theater. The Grand Theater closed around 1927. The building stood vacant for a few years. A fire in 1932 damaged the theater. In 1935, the American Amusement Company of Minneapolis rebuilt the Grand Theater and converted it into a movie theater. I don’t have a closing date for this theater but the Grand Theater lasted at least into the 1960’s. It was demolished in the early-1970’s.

Joseph E. Rosatti was the lead architect for the 1935 rebuilding of the Grand, with the Minneapolis firm of Liebenberg & Kaplan as consulting architects. The August, 1983, issue of Boxoffice Magazine featured an article about Jack Liebenberg which included a small photo of the Grand from around the time of its opening.

A May 18, 1970, Boxoffice Magazine article about the groundbreaking for the Lark Theatre said that the Lark was a replacement for the Grand, and that the Grand was to be demolished after the opening of the new house.

What a bright and lively marquee. Very well designed.
