Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

About 1912 Charles H. Anderson built the Rawlins Opera House, “a thoroughly modern and up-to-date theater.” It opened March 27, 1913. The opera house had a seating capacity of 600. In 1921 it became a movie house. The Fox Corporation bought it in 1940. Through the 1940’s and 1950’s it continued as a movie theater and operated under different names. Its uses changed over the years and now is the home to several different businesses, including the Rawlins Music Academy and the state Parole Board. It stands at 214 4th Street in Rawlins.

Listed in the Film Daily Yearbook as a Fox house (same as the Strand Theatre which was also listed) without seating count listed. Was not listed in the 1940 edition.

Many thanks to Opera Houses of Old Wyoming for the information!
