The Historic World Theatre opened its doors in 1927 as a vaudeville house. By the mid-1940’s the World was purely a movie theater. It closed in 2008. Beginning in 2011, a group of locals restored the theater to its original glory.
Now it’s a nonprofit, volunteer-run theatre. The goal is to bring a better alternative to commercial Hollywood fare by celebrating the motion picture as art. Movies are shown Friday through Sunday. The Theatre is available for rentals. Call for more details.
