The Trigg Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

I think this building was originally built as the Lyon Opera House. In the 1930’s, I assume a third story was added, but the entire building could have been replaced. The new theater was called the Trigg Theater. Due to the segregation at the larger Plaza Theatre, primarily African-Americans went here.

Closed in the mid-1950’s, it later became Bernards, a clothing store, which also closed. I think a law office is still open upstairs, but the building appears unused, but not in bad shape. It’s marquee is gone but the tiled facade is still pretty.

In the spring / summer of 2009, the law offices moved / expanded to the first floor. That space was gutted and remodeled. The tile facade was covered over and now no trace of a historic theatre remains except for one small plaque on the exterior.

My wife and I are the owners of the old Trigg Theater building. The downstairs was in fact remodeled in 2007-08, and we moved from upstairs to downstairs in April 2008.

While the sidewalk level showrooms were enclosed, the tile facade was not touched, and remains as shown in the photo to this date. I don[t know what “plaque” is referred to.
