The Family Theatre had a fifty plus year existence in Pine City. Thanks to the Pine City Area History Association, the theatre’s history is well provided. You would find that the Family Theatre opened in September of 1920 with “The River’s End” and a sell-out with 414 seats filled.
Original owner H.N. Turner added sound in 1930 getting a plaque for doing so and receiving dozens of flower arrangements for the achievement from local residents. The theatre was remodeled in 1931 and an improved sound on film system installed in 1932. The theatre was remodeled again in 1939.
The theatre was able to celebrate its 50th anniversary but there was no chance of a 70th because the theatre was demolished in favor of a jail in 1985.
