Opened as the Blue Hen Theatre in 1916. It was named after the state bird. The theatre was enlarged and updated several times. It was considered ‘The’ movie theatre in Rehoboth Beach for many years. During the 1950’s through 1960 the theatre went on a downhill trend.

Then in 1962 it received a complete remodel including a new facade and at that time it was renamed the Beachwood Theatre. I couldn’t find a closing date but the theatre has been converted to retail.

Today, Valhalla, a jewelry store, occupies the former theater.

. . . and while I’m here, does anyone know in what year the Beachwood Theatre closed?
