Opened as the Royal Theatre in 1930. It was remodelled in 1946 to the plans of architect Henry A. Raapke. It was twinned in the early-1970’s and a third screen added in the early-2000’s. It was originally operated by March Brothers Theatres and later March Theatres. J & J took over operations in 2005. It was closed in 2009, and was renovated and reopened in early-2012. There is a Hollywood Video store in the lobby of the theatre.
