The 1,140-seat Dixon Theatre was opened in 1922 and built on the site of the old Dixon Opera House, which was destroyed by a fire in 1920. Movies lasted for six decades at the Dixon Theatre, but it, like many others, fell into disrepair and by the end of the 1980’s was shuttered.

Fortunately, the theater has now been restored and reopened as a concert venue and community center and is also used by the local theatre guild. The Dixon Theatre is home to a Barton 3 manual 12 rank theatre pipe organ, which is used for concerts and to accompany silent films.
