Previous Names: Keith Theatre, Rex Theatre
Originally opened in 1911 as the Keith Theatre. By 1914 it had been renamed Rex Theatre. The theatre has been renamed the Gateway Theatre after The Gateway Youth Foundation which purchased the shuttered movie house in January 2002 for $35,000.
The Albion, Nebraska theater underwent a year of restorations completed by students and members of the Gateway Youth Foundation. The 269-seat movie house reopened in May 2002.
The restoration project included gutting the interior, repainting the facade and the auditorium’s walls, and cleaning the existing seats. New carpet and tile was also installed.
Other touches included a new projector and the installation of digital sound.
The Gateway is Albion’s only movie theater.
