Walt Theatre

The Walt Theatre was opened on November 14, 1940 with Wallace Beery in “Wyoming”. Recently completely restored the 80 year-old theatre is operating on weekends showing first run attractions.

The two-story building in done in a cream color with Streamline red striping highlighting the front facade. The marquee and the vertical have been restored and the red and white neon replaced. The curved art glass around the main entrance has been fully restored.

The two-story high auditorium has been freshly painted in a cream color with the red streamline lines running completely around the auditorium. It is a beautiful little theatre, and a great restoration has been performed on the theatre inside and out.

Saw this theater from the Amtrak on my way from KC to St. Louis a few days ago. I’m glad to see the place is currently operational.

Operator Walter J. Bucholtz closed the New Haven Theatre on November 10, 1940 and then launched here with his new-build Walt Theatre on November 14, 1940 featuring Wallace Beery in “Wyoming.”
