News About This Theater
Located at W. Broadway Street and F Street. Built in 1929 as a theatre, with a Masonic Temple on the second floor. The Needles Theatre opened as a movie theatre on March 14, 1930 with Charles King in “Chasing Rainbows”. The theatre operated continuously until it was badly damaged by fire in the early-1990’s. It has been closed ever since.
The Needles Area Chamber of Commerce, which purchased the building from the Masons in November 1997, commenced a $4 million renovation and restoration effort in 2002.
The first project was to repaint and refinish the theatre’s façade.
The NACC is currently looking for any historical records, documents, photographs, etc. which could help in their bid to place the theatre on the National Registry of Historic Places.
If you have any information on the theatre or if you would like to donate money or your time, please contact Sue Godnick, the Executive Director of the NACC at (760) 326-2050.
