Constructed in 1925 and opening September 20th, 1926 with the film “Sparrows”, the Vista Theater closed as a movie theater in 1972. It has been used since then for live stage productions.

In the winter of 2003 the theater began showing classic, independent and foreign films as part of the programming.
