The Retlaw Theater opened to the public on December 25, 1925 as a venue for vaudeville and movies. Eventually, movies became the sole form of entertainment, and by 1941 it was operated by Alliance Theater Corp. Around 1990, the Retlaw Theater was twinned. The theater closed in 1998.
The building was sold in 2000 and in 2001, it re-opened for a time as the Bravo Performing Arts Center. This was a venue showcasing various arts, including a dinner theater situated in the former lobby, a dance studio on the third floor, and live theater for children and young adults.
By early-2008, the property has been sold again and the possibility of a restoration project was mentioned, but by 2014, plans were unveiled to demolish for a car park. A grass-roots group has been form to help to save the building.
