The Horsefield Brothers launched the Gasconade Theatre on February 2, 1919 with “Grandma’s Boy.” Mrs. F.H. Gail was there taking a $5 prize for suggesting the name. The picture shows at been held previously at Henneke’s Hall. The Gasconade installed a new sound system on May 19, 1929. In 1955, the theatre installed widescreen to play CinemaScope titles.

This theatre goes back to at least the mid-1920’s when it was known as the Gasconade theatre and was still operating as a movie theatre at least into the late-1960’s. It was renovated fron 2004 thru 2007 when it was reopened as a live venue called the Owensville Community Theatre. Seating was originally listed at 525 but is now listed at 360. Should have an AKA Gasconade Theatre.
