The Burritt Opera House was built in 1895 on the site of the old Mansion House Hotel. It served as both a stop for road shows and as a site for school presentations and graduations as the school auditorium had not yet been built. Movies were interspersed with the live performances.
In 1929 Earl Zimmer took over operation of the theatre and introduced sound pictures over the next two years.
On May 2, 1935 the Burritt Opera House burned to the ground in a spectacular fire. Mr. Zimmer rebuilt at once on the same site. The new theatre was named the Weedsport Theatre.
