Viewing: Photo | Street View

This beautiful theatre originally opened on March 15, 1926. It first played “Charlie’s Aunt” with Syd Chaplin. Tom Mix and his Wonder Horse Tony appeared on stage here as well.

Remodeled in 1937 by architects Liebenberg & Kaplan in an Art Deco style. For years it has been home to a twice annual silent movie night, in which classics like the “Phantom of the Opera”, “Ella Cinders”, “The Thief of Bagdad”, and “The General” are accompanied by an original live score on the Fargo’s mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ.

A really nice Art Deco theater, we were tourists in ND on May 18, 2008. We planned on a movie at the FARGO, but instead they had a wonderful stage event GASPER’S DANCE GALA. Lots of great dance, great costumes, pretty girls.

The Fargo Theatre looks like a great-looking theatre, both inside and out, but the photo presented of the interior of the theatres makes it somewhat more difficult to see what the theatre’s interior really looks like.

Thanks for posting the new pics of the Fargo Theatre’s interior, Lost Memory. Looked at the newer pictures of the interior of the Fargo Theatre—it looks just as cool inside as out. Loved them.

In 1993 the Fargo Theatre was the only Red River Valley area Theatre to boast a 70mm Projection system.Funded in part by a Grant from Great Plains Software.The first 70mm movie was “Lawrence of Arabia” The David Lean Classic.This comes from Boxoffice Nov.1989.
