I like the 1954 photo on the theater website, which was posted on 1/6/09.

The Rodgers Theater is currently open! They just had a re-opening concert featuring Lily Tomlin (Sept 19th, 2008).

They are listed as a 501(3)C Non-Profit. I am so exciting and honored to be the webmaster. I remember going to the Rodgers as a teen! I will post a link to the site when it is running!

I heard this theater has been renovated and reopened for live performances. Is that true?

The Rodgers is in Poplar Bluff, Missouri… not Pine Bluff. I not only attended that theater from 1966 to 1972, but also worked there as an usher ( used to change the marquee letters as well ).
