The Frederick City Opera House was built in 1891. It was operated by the city of Frederick as a venue for vaudville, stage shows, and community events. The theater featured a balcony and four opera boxes along the side walls. In 1921, the theater was renovated with sound equipment and movies were first shown in 1922. The theater was the first to show “talkies” in Frederick. By 1941 it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp.
The City Opera House closed in 1961. When the theater closed, the stage, opera boxes, balcony, and orchestra pit were all demolished. However, today, the the facade of the building remains the same.
