Located on Main Street (today renamed Old Virginia Street, next door to what is now the ABC Virginia store). The Regal Theatre opened in 1931, and was renamed Rappanna Theatre in 1932. Seating was provided for 225.
The original building burned down in 1949, and it was rebuilt in 1951, in an Art Deco style. It had seating for 500 in orchestra and balcony levels. The town postmaster was one of the owners of the theatre.
The Rappanna Theatre operated as a movie theatre into the 1960’s, and for a while after, it was used for performances and other events.
