The Fort Theatre, also known as the Fort Armstrong Theatre, is another classic theatre that started off with silent pictures/vaudeville and then switched exclusively to movies. It opened on January 19, 1921 with 1,800 seats.
The theatre was decorated with a Western theme that was in keeping with its pioneer past, including teepee chandeliers. It was closed in 1971 and became an adult movie theatre, which closed in 1973.
In the late-1970’s, Dennis Hitchcock purchased the theatre, terraced the main floor, installed tables, and renamed it the ‘Circa 21 Dinner Playhouse’. Mr. Hitchcock otherwise left the theatre’s color and style as they were.
While the main floor has a small entrance and lobby, there is a large lounge on the 2nd floor.
