Royal Theater ... Gering Nebraska

The Royal Theatre was opened prior to 1917. Around 1935 it was renamed Grove Theatre. By 1950 it was operated by Gibraltar Enterprises Inc. and they were still the operators in the early-1960’s.

I’ve lived in Gering my whole life, and never knew that building use to be a theater. It must have closed a long time ago. I’d love to see any old photos of this place.

The Royal Theatre was in operation by 1917, when a promotion involving it was the subject of this item in the September 15 issue of Motography:

“The management of the Royal Theater and the merchants of Gering, Nebraska, are experimenting with a free ticket plan which will continue in effect until October 27. Under the operation of this scheme purchasers of goods are receiving tickets with what they buy, entitling them to one admission on each ticket to the Monday night and Saturday matinĂ©e shows of the Royal Theater. As tickets require no extra outlay of cash the bills being footed by the business men engaged in the plan, it is expected to prove a satisfactory trade inducement.”

From the July 7, 1956 Motion Picture Herald:

Gibralter Enterprises has closed the Rex, Casper, Wyo., the Motorena drive-in, Greeley, Colo., and has placed the Grove, Gering, Neb., on one change a week – weekends.
