The Nashua Theatre opened September 15, 1934 and operated by the Cass Theatre Circuit which had theaters in Sumner, Strawberry Point and Waucoma. The opening feature was “Murder at the Vanities.” It opened in the same location once housing the Senate Theatre and, prior to that, the Grand Theatre. The theater closed Nov. 1, 1954 only to be reopened just weeks later. In May of 1955, the theater closes again and is put up for sale. The theater reopens in October of 1957 closing in 1958. In 1960, the theater opens up in the summer for one last go around closing September 10, 1960 with “The Jayhawker.” That may end the theater’s lifecycle.

Hem Theatre Circuit operated the same theater under the Senate Theatre name. Opened as the Grand Theatre in 1915 which prior was the Moon Hotel building.
