News About This Theater
- Sep 28, 2013 — Ashland Theatre donated to town
The Ashland Theatre, which was opened in 1948, sits directly on Route 54 (England Street) in a ‘Mayberry-like’ town. Its facade has a distinct Art Moderne tower with glass block. In a small adjoining building was a cafe.
Rumor has it that two of the four doors on the side of the cafe were originally African-American-only restrooms. Operated as a second-run movie house until about 1998, when it still had its old Century projectors in place. Saw some ocassional use once again from 2005 until 2007 with film screenings and live events. It was reopened in late-2014.
