Previous Names: New Theatre
The New Theatre was opened on September 25, 1927 with Mildred Davis in “Too Many Crooks”. It was equipped with a Robert-Morton pipe organ. On December 9, 1927 it was renamed Trail Theatre. It was given a Streamline Moderne style makeover in 1934.
My father owned and operated the Trail Theatre until the early-1970’s. It was originally equipped with an orchestra pit and facilities for live shows when built in 1927. My father upgraded it for CinemaScope on March 25, 1954, screening Richard Burton in “The Robe”. Projectors were Simplex XL’s, sound was Altec.
The theatre was decorated with western murals which, sadly, perished during the demolition.
It had four large beautiful oak and brass entrance doors and a marquee featuring a western scout.
