News About This Theater
- Feb 12, 2010 — Concrete Theatre reopens
The Concrete Theatre originally opened in its current location, 45920 Main Street in Concrete, WA, in 1923, after two previous buildings that housed the theatre burned to the ground. Seating was provided for 300. Its past has been colorful, with the screen featuring silent films and ‘talkies’, and its stage hosting boxing matches, school and church performances, live music and amateur theatre.
New owners of the Concrete Theatre, Valerie Stafford and Fred West, purchased the building in 2009, refurbished it, and reopened the venue on February 12, 2010. Movies, (primarily second-run) are screened every weekend, and a variety of special performances and live concerts take the stage on a regular basis. The building is also the home of Encore Fitness, with group exercise classes taught on the dance floor.
The town of Concrete caught the attention of movie-goers everywhere when the movie “This Boy’s Life” starring Robert De Nero, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Barkin was filmed there in the late-1990’s. Tobias Wolff, author of the book by the same name, lived in Concrete as a teenager.
