Built in 1890. Part of a beautiful slice of old Florida on the square. Started showing silent films during the earliest part of the previous century along with other forms of entetainment. Never seemed to make the switch to talkies. Closed by 1930

Contributed by George H.Hill III

aka the Monticello Opera House, this opened in the Fall of 1890 with a show called “The Clipper” with the Amy Lee Company. The architect was W.R. Gunn.

The facade is of red brick and the U-shaped auditorium is on the 2nd floor on two levels. In the late 1980’s it was being used as a Cultural Centre.
