News About This Theater
- Mar 23, 2011 — Fast-acting Firefighters Save Missouri Theater
Opened by Publix Theatres on June 25, 1927 with Clara Bow in “Rough House Rosie”. The 1,391-seat Missouri Theatre was a first run movie palace for almost fifty years until film alone could no longer support the theatre’s cash flow requirements. The Missouri Theatre finally closed in the mid-1970’s.
The Town Hall Center was formed in 1976 to save the Missouri Theatre and took charge of managing the theatre for the city until 1979 – when management duties were transferred to the Performing Arts Association. The Missouri Theatre was then reopened as a fully operational performing arts center.
