The Little Theatre opened in 1913 and built on the site of the former Lowell Theatre that was destroyed by fire in that same year. That was destroyed by fire in January 1933 and the Falls Theatre was built and opened in June 1933.

The exterior features flashing neon lights, black Vitrolite highlights the marquee and around the poster cases of the lobby.

After a couple remodels it was again remodeled in 1937 to reflect the 10th anniversary of Charles Lingbergh’s trans-Atlantic flight. Charles Lindbergh was from Little Falls. The theatre was given an aviation theme. A mural of an aviator holding, a globe, an airplane and a dirigible.

In its last remodel it was triplexed and was renamed Falls Cinema. It was closed (temporarily) on July 16, 2020.

A March 3, 2012, article in the Morris County Record said that the Lowell Theatre was opened in 1915, and was destroyed by a fire in January, 1933. The Falls Theatre was built on the same site, opening in June, 1933.

Just tried the phone number, its been disconnected. According to their Facebook page, their last day of operation before an unknown length of “temporary” closure was 7/16/2020. When I was in Little Falls MN this summer, the theater was still closed, and the marquee said “Closed until…. hollywood….”
