Built in 1875 as an Opera House, it was later converted into a store. The Melba Theater opened in 1940, a Streamline Moderne style movie house on Batesville’s Main Street. The theater features a large vertical sign flush to the facade and a triangular marquee, both spelling out the theater’s name in neon-lit letters.
Though the Melba Theater closed in the early-1990’s, it was renovated and reopened in 2000 and today functions both as a concert venue and movies on weekends. It has also been a host theater for the Ozark Foothills Film Festival. The Melba Theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Closed by 2016 for renovations and fundraising for a digital projector.
