Replacing the adjacent Strand Theatre which had closed in 1945, the Smyrna Theatre opened in April 1948. It was designed by architect John Zink, with Frederick L.W. Moehle as associate architect. It has a rather plain exterior. Inside the auditorium there is a wealth of decoration, and two murals are set on the splay walls each side of the proscenium. Seating was provided in orchestra level, with a small balcony for the exclusive use by African-American patrons. It was closed around 1981. The building has been converted into the Painted Stave distillery retaining some of its original features.
