Opened in 1918 as the Miner’s Institute, it became a second-run movie theatre in the 1960’s and closed in 1984. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.

Now re-opened as a live performance venue, in January 2011 it was closed for renovation.

The theater company website shows productions in many different venues. It looks like the last show at Miners was in 2002, so they may not be using it as a venue now.

I don’t know which production company (or companies) is involved, but I do occasionally see coming-events posters at the Miners.

This theater is currently closed and renovations are in progress; however, elements in the renovation plan may have to be scaled back as the costs are running ahead of the original estimates and available resources: View link
