Built in 1915 by Massillonian, John McClain, as a 900-seat playhouse with a Hillgreen-Lane "straight" pipe organ for accompaniment, this theater was bought in the late-1920’s by the Schine Brothers, who added a full rectangular marquee and a new Wurlitzer 2/7 theater organ.
Another group of “brothers”, the Warners, took over the theater in the 1930’s, and the marquee changed again to a triangular format.
That marquee was recently replicated and the whole building has been restored. The seating was downsized over the years to 684 seats to allow for a larger stage.
The theater organ was sold in the 1980’s and the theater is now owned by the Massillon Lion’s Club who maintain and operate it.
