When the Opera House opened in 1906, it was moving pictures that St. John residents clamored for. The Electric Theatre launched February 11, 1909 as the town’s first dedicated movie theatre. It opened in the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) building on the North Side of St. John’s downtown square.

When the Palace Theatre opened in February of 1913, the competing Electric Theatre would cease operations later in the year. The IOOF building was still on the square in the 21st Century.
