Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

This theater had a unique construction. After you bought a ticket, you would walk down a flight of stairs and then find yourself in the theater balcony.

The Main Street was destroyed in a fire in May 1941.

The Main Street Theater had 300 seats in 1940. Oddly enough, the location given is Main Street. In 1945 there is a 350 seat New Main Theater listed for Galeton. In 1955 there is a 482 seat Main Street Theater located on Main Street in Galeton. It appears that the theater was either rebuilt or replaced.

I am pretty sure that the theatre building survived into the mid 1970’s when it was destroyed by fire. I was one of teh fireman that responded on a mutual aid call form over 70 miles away. Not quite sure what month it was but I know it was below zero that morning.
