The Ben Ali Theatre opened on September 23, 1913 with the play “The Passing Show of 1912”. It was built by (and named for) a prominent area businessman, James Ben Ali Haggin. The Ben Ali Theatre was originally designed for legitimate theatre, but within two years of its opening, had become primarily a movie house. By 1941 it was operated by the Schine Circuit. The theatre was closed and torn down in 1965, replaced by a parking lot.
