Constructed as the Rivoli Theatre in 1922 to the plans of architect Abram Preiskel, it opened April 22, 1922. It was remodelled in 1936 to the plans of architect John Eberson. The Rivoli Theatre was partially destroyed in a fire January 9 1977, when most damage was done to the lobby that fronted onto Sylvan Street.
The theatre reopened as the Williams Center, presenting movies, shows, children’s program but is now called the George W. Newman Theatre. It was closed for repairs June 22, 2015. In July 2016 three digital projectors were installed in readiness for the theatre’s reopening.
