MISHLER Theatre; Altoona, Pennsylvania.

Viewing: Photo | Street View

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.
