Opened in February 1937 with “Pennies From Heaven”, the Tift Theatre originally had seating for 1,400 and was designed in Art Moderne style, complete with a multicolored tile facade and neon-lit vertical sign and marquee. The interior of the Tift Theatre had an unusual theme to its decor, the circus. The theatre lasted exactly half a century before it went dark.
Soon afterward, the community gathered behind the Tift Theatre to save it, and it was restored and refurbished for use for various forms of live entertainment, as well as being available for special events.
