Village Family Theatre

Originally built in 1896 as an armory. It was converted into a movie theatre in the 1920’s. In 1946, architect Perry Crosier in association with the architectural firm of Liebenberg & Kaplan, completely remodeled the Village Theatre into a late-Streamline Moderne style. By 1957 it was operated by Drive-In Theatres Inc.

The theatre survived into the 1970’s, and after closing, housed a bar and later an appliance store. The former Village Theatre was converted into a church around 2000, with its lobby and facade restored to their 1940’s appearance. In 2013, it was renovated and reopened as a movie theatre and is now known as the Village Family Theatre.
