Whitewhright’s first historical theater was the Odeon Theater which was opened by Magnum and Moorehead May 22, 1914. Ticket prices were 5 and 10 cents. The Odeon Theater was purchased in the early-1920’s by B.Legg and Roscoe Pace who operated it until February 11th, 1926 when they sold it to the Robb and Rowley theater chain.

Remodeled and renamed the R&R it was sold after only a year to Theodore Miller who promptly renamed it the Palace Theater. Cloy Horton and Joe Johnson bought the Palace Theater in the mid-1930s and then sold out to Marshall B. Hasty.

In 1947 Hasty sold the Palace to Mr and Mrs George Hite who operated it for three years and sold out to the Gillispies. The theater met its end in the late 1960’s known as the Linda Theater as named by the final owners.
