The Columbia Theatre was opened by Comerford Publix Theatres on November 14, 1940 with Roy Rogers in “Young Bill Hickok”. It was closed in 1981.
In 1978, after two years of studying with Alvina Krause, the legendary teacher of theatre, a group of young artists decided to put down roots in the town of Bloomsburg and start a theatre. Thus began the nonprofit Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble which in 1980 purchased the 625-seat Columbia Theatre in downtown Bloomsburg. The old movie theatre maintains most of its original and unusual marquee.
