The Columbia was never a Moyer theater. The local owner sold to Sterling (SRO) after WWII. SRO sold it to the City of Longview in 1983. The city leases it to the nonprofit Columbia Theater Association for the Performing Arts.

At one time this was operated by Tom Moyer’s Luxury Theatres.

Back in the early 1990s, they had a special event to re-open this theater. I went with a friend. They did some live vaudeville acts, and then showed the 1925 silent file “The Phantom of the Opera” with Lon Chaney. The film was accompanied live by an organist and a few other instruments.

It’s a really beautiful theater. The company that was responsible for the renovation has a nice photo of the interior.
