Mr. and Mrs. James W. Pace launched the original Pace Theatre on April 3, 1916 with a live play, “Kentucky Sue.” Son, Archie, also worked at the Pace Theatre. But the family decided to build a more grand venue.

The new location was announced in 1923 with architectural plans by E.B. Watson of Norfolk. The original Pace continued until January of 1925 when the New Pace opened nearby. The new Pace has its own page as the Eagle Theatre, a name it received in 1967.
