The Waterville Opera House (Official)
Previously operated by: Lockwood & Gordon Enterprises
Functions: Performing Arts
The Waterville Opera House, built in 1902 as the City Opera House, was decorated in the Beaux-Arts style popular around the turn of the 20th century and unusually ornate for a small town opera house.
It later became a vaudeville venue and later, in the 1940’s, a movie house. The Opera House was closed in the 1950’s, when it was acquired by the Jaycees of Waterville who leased the auditorium for local groups. In the 1960’s and 1970’s, the stage was used once again for community theater.
The Waterville Opera House Association was formed to preserve and restore the theater for future generations. Today the Opera House serves as one of the finest performing arts venues in the state of Maine, with sumptuous decor, excellent acoustics, and state of the art technology.
