The Swiss Theatre opened in the summer of 1948, according to an item in the October 23 issue of Boxoffice Magazine that year. The 449-seat theater was designed by the Evansville, Indiana, firm of Warweg and Hagel. Other issues of Boxoffice give the name of the original operator of this independent house as Silver Rayley (or Raley- their spelling is inconsistent.)

At various times, Tell City also had theaters called the Royal, the Rialto, and the Ohio.
