The American Theatre opened as a movie house in downtown Troy in the early-1920’s. It had a twin, the State (Rose) Theatre on 4th Street which was torn down in the 1960’s for a parking lot.
By 1941, the American Theatre was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp., followed by the Fabian Theaters chain in the late-1940’s. It converted over to adult films in the late-1960’s, and showed them until March 2006 when the theatre was raided by the police and closed down. The theatre lobby and auditorium are still very original.
In 2016, the city and Bow Tie Cinemas are working to assemble a three million Dollar funding plan for the refurbishment and reopening of this historic gem, as a daily screen single movie theatre.
