The LaBelle Theater opened around 1940. It continued as a movie theatre until at least 1950. After closing it was used as a museum and still had film capability for showing documentaries. It was used for a while as a church.

Here’s a 2007 view of the very nicely redone LaBelle Theater:

I think I used to go to this theater a lot as a kid. I think I saw my first horror movie here (if you consider Gremlins to be horror). I was 5. I think I also saw Flight of the Navigator here. Maybe someone can help me with this. Was the LaBelle lobby decorated with decals of Disney characters? If so, then I remember this theater.

Is this theater still around? 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.

This is no longer a theatre, it is the Rose of Sharon Fellowship Church.

The Labelle is no longer a church. The city renovated it. The WV International Film Festival just announced they will be there this year.
