The 1,200-seat Rogers Theater opened in 1936 with Joan Crawford in “Love on the Run”. It was closed in 1985. When volunteers begin to restore this Art Deco style theater, they have decided to not only save the classic theater, but also to preserve the treasured memories of the audiences who attended the theater.
They plan to compile a book of experiences from anyone who went to the theater. The book will be written concurrently with the restoration of the theater.
For a while, it was re-named Don Gibson Theater (not to be confused with the current Don Gibson Theatre which was previously the State Theatre & Flick Theatre). The Rogers Theatres was taken over by new owners in 2009, to become a performing arts center and dinner theatre. In 2013, the building was put up ‘For Sale’ at an asking price of $385,000.00
