This old wooden theater has been restored and is supposedly open, but the last information I can find is from 2002. I’m not sure whether it shows movies, or is a community center. The marquee is very old fashioned and small, and is inside the front doors.

The Nifty is a real gem inside. It operates for movies when there’s a community fundraiser or desire; same for drama productions. The owner, James Dixon, is a theater enthusiast and has put a lot of work into restoring & maintaining this building. It has a historic, handpainted backdrop and exotic landscape scenes painted in the ceiling coves. The old vaudeville pit is still visible.
