The Kanawha Theater was open until the mid 1970’s, then it was closed for a time and converted to a bar.

Kanawha Theater on South Kanawha Street is for sale as of September 2006. It is currently operating as a saloon. Brickwork is in need of repair.

There were two other movie theaters in Buckhannon. The 1926 Colonial Theater which now operates as a saloon and the Grand Opera House which showed MGM and Paramount product in the 1930’s and 1940’s before it was lost around the end of WW2.

Yuck, a bar? I am in the process of buying and rehabbing the Philippi Grand and if it proves profitable I want to work on reopening other theaters in WV, KY, OH, PA, MD, and VA. There are so many wonderful old theaters with more character than any modern cookie cutter places.
