Peoples Theatre

The Peoples Theatre opened in 1909. The theatre was reconstructed in 1948 in a Streamline Moderne style. The Peoples Theatre closed as a movie theatre in 1972.

In 1982 it was reopened as a live performance venue for country music and comedians. In 2012 a drive with matching funds was met and the iconic ‘Peoples’ vertical sign and marquee were copied and replaced. In October 2014 the Big Creek Country will celebrate its 32nd anniversary in the Peoples Theatre.

Picture of the Kellogg should be removed, it’s a totally different building. Not sure if it ever showed movies, it seems to have become a church pretty early on.

Obviously no-one was doing art deco in 1948. I’m not sure what I’d call the facade, and the auditorium was likely done in a budget streamline style. The website is dead, and they are now using FB: https://www.facebook.com/PleasantHillPlayersCommunityTheatre/

I’ll also point out that the vertical sign is not a restoration but a replacement.
