The Ironwood Theatre opened in 1928 as a vaudeville and movie house. It later switched to movies-only and closed in 1982.

The theater was donated to the City of Ironwood and was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1985.

The theater has been undergoing a long renovation and restoration effort that continues to this day.

The Ironwood Theater’s 2/7 Opus 145 Barton Theater Organ in 2002 became the 42nd inductee into the American Theater Organ Society’s National Registry of Historic and Significant Instruments. The only inductee that year. Since then 12 more theater organs have been added to the registry.

The long awaited restoration of the Barton Organ Console was done this past year. After an almost year-long restoration, the console was reinstalled in the Ironwood Theatre during June of 2010. A series of concerts/silent movies is planned for mid-September. Carlton Smith Pipe Organs of Indianapolis, IN did a fantastic job! The organ is completely playable/functional and sits on it’s own original Barton Theatre Organ Lift. It is one of six Barton Organs playing in their original installations. It is small, only 2 manuals and 7 ranks of pipes, but it really fills the theatre with a vibrant and glorious sound! Come and hear the Grand Old Lady sign once again!
