Downtown Dickinson with Dickinson Theater in near back

The Dickinson Theatre of Dickinson, ND was the main place to see movies for many years in Dickinson. Located on E. Villard Street in between Sims Street and 1st Avenue East, the Dickinson Theatre started out as a single screen theatre but added a second screen in later years.

Closed down during the 1980’s when Cine 3 came into Dickinson. The building was demolished in 1993 even though there were people who tried to save it and the building next door as historical landmarks.

The spot is now where a downtown park sits.

Formally opened on September 1 1937 with the movie “Mountain Music”. Initially the theater sat 700. In 1977 they added the second theater as well as reduced the size of the original theater to 475. The second Theater sat 200. Sold to Carisch Theaters in 1981 and closed on January 7 1982.

Wrong! That address places it one block east of where the theater was. The Dickinson Theater was right beside the Ivanhoe Inn.

The former Ivanhoe building’s address(Now Jordheim’s Gym and Fitness) is 41 East Villard Street, so 15 East Villard was correct.
