News About This Theater
The Earle Theatre was opened in 1938 with a seating capacity for 600. It was operated by the Stewart and Everett Theatres chain. It was closed in 1980 due to competition from multiplexes nearby.
In 1990, Stewart and Everett Theatres donated the theatre to Surry Arts Council. The theatre was in great disrepair and after countless hours of volunteer work, the theatre got a new lease on life, reopening as the Downtown Cinema Theatre. The Surry Arts Council operates the theatre five nights a week, showing movies at a 3.00 admission. The theatre is also available for other activities. By 2011, it was known again as the Earle Theatre
