Midwest Theater (Official)
Architects: Charles Dunwoody Strong
Styles: Streamline Moderne
The Midwest Theater was opened on May 3, 1946 with Rita Hayworth in “Gilda”. It had 920 seats located in orchestra and balcony levels. There was a 12-table pool hall in the basement below the auditorium.
It is still in relatively good repair with the original art work, some seats and carpeting all still within its walls.
Currently, the theater is owned by the Friends of the Midwest Theater and is operated by its volunteers.
Showing second run movies, the foundation is currently renovating the theater for live performances as well as movies.
In 2002, they received a tourism grant to renovate the very large marquee to all of its original splendor.
