The Grand Theatre, which opened in 1925 with 1,000 seats, closed in the late-1990’s as a second-run movie house and is seeking to raise between $5-7 million for restoration costs. The new owners, the Wheaton Grand Theater Corp., reopened the theater on a limited basis in 2002 with the Wheaton Grand Theatre serving as a venue for concerts, classic film screenings and other community events.
The Wheaton Grand Theater closed April 1, 2006, to allow for the beginning of an $8 million restoration and renovation project which was expected to take around two years to return the theater to its original appearance, including a return to a single screen configuration. Unfortunately, by 2011, these plans had come to nothing, and the theatre sits empty and unused.
