The Sherman Theater opened for business on August 2, 1926 and was deemed an instant success.
A four column article in the Goodland News Republic, dated July 29, 1926, gives details on the theater’s decor, seating, curtains, refreshment stand, and copper drinking fountain, which was the focus of the lobby. The theater’s first feature, Tramp, Tramp, Tramp, starred a matinee idol of the day, Harry Langdon, and was, of course, a silent film.
Without warning in 1928, a disastrous fire almost consumed the Sherman Theatre. Undiscovered because of the early hour, the fire managed to burn through the back or east wall of the theatre, collapsing the wall and roof into the alley.
However, the theater was eventually restored and has had a successful run as a movie house. By 1941 through to at least 1950, it was operated by Commonwealth Amusement.
