Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located next to the old Deadwood City Hall (1889) on Main Street, the Deadwood Theatre opened in 1885 as the Opera House. After it burned down, it was rebuilt in 1906 as the Deadwood Theatre. Originally serving as a legitimate theater, the Deadwood Theatre later became a movie house.

Another fire in 1952 destroyed both the Deadwood Theatre and the next door City Hall. Any further information on this theater would be appreciated.

“Days of ‘76” an entry in Warners’ “Sports Parade” series of shorts detailing an annual event in Deadwood —-one-time home to Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane, —– where locals revive the past — had its world premiere here. The town celebrated accordingly.

The theatre may have been seen in the film Calamity Jane(Doris Day)?

Is there anything there now on that site?

Because there were several other theatres on Main Street in Deadwood, without a specific address for this one, there is no way to search the street view for what is there now. I added the Flame Theatre also on Main a while back, and there is a clothing boutique in that space now.
