News About This Theater
The Town Theatre was opened July 20, 1946 and remained a single screen movie house until its closing in 2008. A small Mom & Pop theatre showing foreign and independent films, the Town Theatre was known for its intermissions where they often served free cake and coffee. The long-term owners had to deal with family illness, which led to its closure.
In 2012 it was taken over by the city for non payment of back taxes. In September 2014, a public meeting was held to debate the future of the theatre with hopes of restoration and reopening the building. In November 2017 it was announced the theatre would be demolished December 12, 2017, but this was briefly postponed and demolition occured on January 11, 2018.
