The Grand Theatre was built in 1917. The theatre was remodeled by architect S. Charles Lee in 1936. I don’t know when this theatre closed. Probably in the mid-1970’s. The screen and chairs are gone and cement has been poured in the center of the space to make it possible to drive a vehicle into it. The decor on the walls and the light fixtures are still intact. The marquee and box office are gone and the front has been bricked up and a garage door installed.
The Elks Lodge was located on the second floor of the building. There was not entrance to the second floor so it was accessed by the adjoining building. The movie theatre itself has not been used for anything other than a parking area and storage for the past fifteen years or so.
The theatre was turned over to the Verde Valley Theatre to restore and use as a live theatre venue. VVT then began a process of renovating it for its performances.
