MISHLER Theatre; Altoona, Pennsylvania.

The Mishler Theatre was opened on February 15, 1906, and was designed by architect Albert E. Westover. It had a seating capacity for 1,925. Eight months later on October 19, 1906, it was destroyed by fire. Albert E Westover designed a new Mishler Theatre on the site. Today, this theatre has been wonderfully restored to its vaudevillian days, and is now home to many thespian productions.

I seen it on the show yesterday. Seems it was a waste of time, as they did not turn off the lights to the place to they chose not to investigate it. Why would they even bother including it in the show? To get viewers, thats why!

Hello ALL,

Could someone fix these links? There is not a single one working, including the main website. I am going to be in Altoona this coming weekend and would like to learn more about this theatre. I probably will check it out when I am down there.

Beautiful theater. We provide production supplies to many touring companies who set up in restored theaters. It is wonderful to see these theaters thrill a new generation of fans. You can check us out at http://thetapeworks.com/
