Meionaon Hall opened in Kezar Falls around 1884. In the 1920’s and 1930’s, Roland Stanley presented movies there, as the Stanley Theatre. After 1940 it was renovated and renamed Playhouse. Movies lasted at the Playhouse until 1971. It then became a warehouse. In 2014 there was a meeting there to discuss future plans for the building. It has since reopened as a venue for concerts, a film school, lecture venue and occasional movies.

This theater and playhouse is renovated and active in the community as a film school, concert venue, lecture venue, and occasional commercial movies (free). A wonderful renovation and now asset to the community. http://www.smoothfeather.com
