The Jamestown Theatre was opened in 1925. By 1930 it was known as the Jamestown Theater. It was closed as a silent cinema April 23, 1931. Taken over by Captain Scott who operated theatres in Hampton & Phoesbus, it reopened May 5, 1932 as the Smithfield Theatre. It was wired for sound and boasted 150 seats. Still listed with 150 seats in early-1937.
Captain Scott converted a building adjacent to the older theatre, merging them together to creat a 300-seat auditorium which reopened October 22, 1937. It remained with this seating capacity until around 1950 when it was listed with 511 seats. It was closed March 9, 1961. The building was ‘For Sale’ in March 1962.
