The 579-seat Crooksville Opera House was built and opened by Emmet E. Brannon as a legitimate house in the pottery and coal-mining community of Crooksville, Ohio, which then had a population of 4,500. The business manager was W. Loughead. The second-floor auditorium had a proscenium opening of 29 feet and a height of 28 feet. The stage depth from the footlights to the back wall was 22 feet; the distance from curtain line to footlights was 3 feet; between the side walls, 51 feet. The stage rose 28 feet to the rigging loft. W. Watts, the orchestra leader, led six musicians in the orchestra, which dissolved when the theatre switched to motion pictures. At some point in the 1930’s, the theatre closed and the building was remodeled by a new owner.
