The 1,000-seat Grandin Theatre was opened March 26, 1932. It is the only remaining classic movie house in the city, closed in November 2001 due to financial pressures amid increased competition from local multiplexes. The final, sold out screening of “The Last Picture Show” was a fitting end for the Grandin Theatre.
While owner Julie Hunsaker was forced to close the theatre, the Grandin Theatre Foundation restored and reopened the theatre after a $1.25 million effort. The main, very ornate auditorium is intact, except that the former balcony houses two more auditoriums. There is also a separate screening room
Today, the Grandin Theatre is back and better than ever.
