Its grand opening was July 28, 1949 with Mayor Ed Williams on hand to help launch the $100,000 venue.

Here is a reminiscence about the Wabash Theatre written by former projectionist W.F. Werzner. The theater is presumably still intact and usable, as it was the venue for a variety and talent show, part of the annual Grayville Days event, as recently as September 3 last year, and for a town-wide church service the following Sunday.

The Wabash has a neat old style ticket booth inside the lobby as well as the old time popcorn machine. It seat 480 people.
