Vista Theatre

The Vista Theatre was opened prior to 1941. It has been closed since December 24, 1989, when a fire broke out inside the theatre. The last movie to play was “All Dogs Go To Heaven”. The facade and marquee have since been restored, but the interior is still a mess.

The fire was Christmas Eve 1989. “All Dogs Go To Heaven” which was released November 17, 1989 remained on the marquee for years according to locals. “Ernest Saves Christmas” 1988 and “Batman” 1989 had also played there previously.
