This Kingman Theatre was built by Mr. S. F. Mead and his son, Frank, as a new opera house for the community of Kingman. The structure became an instant landmark, as well as a distinctive ornament for the community, especially with its night lights.

The seating capacity of the original house was 700, with standing room for approximately 100 more. The standing room also gave the patrons the convenience of moving around without missing any of the show being presented.

Built at a cost of $40,000 at the time of its grand opening in July 1920, this theater has remained true to the original intentions of its creators: to offer the community first class peforming arts.

This theater has a very cool feature when you sit in the balcony (16 or older) They will bring you refills wich is great but sometimes scary during a scary movie LOL!
