The Bohm Theatre opened on Christmas Day, 1929. George Bohm’s earlier theatre of the same name had opened elsewhere in Albion, in 1915. The New Bohm Theatre sat 1,100 and was located on South Superior Street in downtown Albion.

The theatre has opened and closed a number of times over the decades. It was last operated by Albion College before closing once again in late-October 2007.

In April 2013, renovations began with plans for a reopening in December 2014. Once reopened it will have 400 seats.

The site is down and the phone number, 517-629-3000, is disconnected. If the theater was open in February, it apparently didn’t last long.
