There is another theater in Nelsonville, also on Public Square. Stuart’s Opera House opened in 1879 and operated until 1924, then was closed for decades. It was reopened in the 1970s. It’s not listed here in Cinema Treasures which is a hint that it never showed movies. The 1897-98 edition of the Julius Cahn Official Theatrical Guide says it had 1,042 seats and that it was an “upstairs house” on the second floor. Today, it’s a performing arts house, still using its original name.
