Replacing an earlier Strand Theatre which was destroyed by fire on January 28, 1928. The Humota Theater was opened on October 2, 1928. In the 2000’s it was operated by Fridley Theatres. In 2018 it was taken over by an independent non-profit operator.

There’s supposed to be an audio clip here for a Humota Theater ad in 1960, but the clip doesn’t appear to be working.

OK, thanks. I wasn’t sure why it wasn’t working, since I’m technologically challenged.

The Humota Theatre opened its doors on October 2, 1928. This replaced the Strand Theatre after it was destroyed by a fire on January 28, 1928 (yes the town of Humboldt has a former movie house named the Strand Theatre, which has nothing to be confused with the Strand in nearby Fort Dodge).
