The old Chatham Theater has not been demolished. It has not been used as theater in over 35 years however. Pittsylvania County owns the building now, but I am not sure how they use it.

There is good street view on Googlemaps, but I cannot figure out how to transfer the photo here. It is located not on Main St., but Chatham Hall Circle about one block off Main St. It is easy to identify as an old theater. From overhead it is easy to spot as well, since it is a quonset hut, still painted green. The front is white stucco.

Found this on a Chatham Town Website. The Chatham Theater, as pictured, was not on Main Street, it was on a side street. I went there in the 1960’s once or twice.

19 Pruden Street (9/2006). The old Chatham Theatre, built during the 1940’s as a massive Quonset structure, is currently used by the Pittsylvania County government.
