Arcadia Publishing Company has an entire book devoted to the World Theatre, part of its “Images of America” series.

The World opened on November 14, 1927. The opening program included vaudeville acts, the feature film Adam and Evil, and an Our Gang comedy short. There was also music from the theater’s Marr & Colton organ. The theater was designed by architect James T. Allen, who had designed the Roseland Theatre in Omaha a few years earlier.

The recent renovation of the World Theatre was designed by architect Philip Cudaback of Lahaina Architects.
