Bandon Theater

The Bandon Theater served as the hometown movie theater in Bandon, Oregon from 1937 until the late-1970’s. The last owners were Jack and Shirley Ward. The theater was built as a somewhat temporary structure following the 1936 Bandon fire, but continued to serve for nearly 40 years. The seating arrangement as 5/10/5 X 20 but was altered a bit after a modest renovation in the late-1960’s. The theater had a decent projection and sound system—better than many larger theaters in the area.

1937 opening shot in photos. The New Bandon Theatre replaced the Hartman Theatre which was destroyed along with most of the city in a catastrophic September 1936 fire.
