Opened in 1921 as the Rivoli Theatre, it switched to talkies in 1929 and was renamed Our Theatre in 1931.
The theatre did not receive its current name until 1965, when the Fonstein family purchased the theatre. When the Dhuses family, the current owners of the theatre, bought it in 1976, they retained the Harbor Theatre name.
In 1977, a fire broke out in the theatre and the Harbor Theatre was gutted and closed. It reopened two years later and, in 1981, the cinema added an additional screen.
The Harbor Theatre closed in June, 2001 after 80 years of showing movies for the Lakeside neighborhood. Citing increased competition from the Plaza 1 & 2, a second run theatre in nearby Norton Shores, the old movie house had been leaking money for months before closing. At the time of its closing, the theatre was still charging just $1.50 for admission.
The Harbor Theatre reopened in March of 2008 showing a mix of first and second-run and classic films and by 2017 was a first run theatre. It was closed on December 27, 2018 and the business was transferred to the nearby Plaza 1 & 2, which was renamed Harbor Theatre
