Warner Bros. Studio opened the Cameo on Aug. 20th, 1937. The program that night was a Merrie Melody cartoon “With Plenty Of Money & You” followed by the main feature “Ever Since Eve” with Marion Davies. Although WB was hoping to put Ted Francis out of business, he eventually prevailed and bought the Cameo in 1939. It was an “Adults Only' theater for a long time. Not for content, but as in ‘no kids allowed’.

This beautiful Art Deco theatre is worth the drive from out of town to see a movie with a golden age atmosphere. In the 20’s and 30’s beautiful details did matter, and you can see it within the walls of this place that transports you to a time of glamour. Little change has been seen at the Cameo Theatre over the years, it’s a dream come true for history lovers. Open 7 nights a week.

The Cameo theater was built in 1937 and owned by J.T. Francis. Today, his grandson Brian Francis owns and operates the 350 seat Cameo theater.
