This theatre was built in 1915 and resides just around the corner from the Geneva Theatre, or Smith Opera House. It was orginally a stage theatre and later converted to a cinema. By 1941, it was operated by the Schine Circuit as the Regent Theatre. Current efforts to reuse this theatre are actively underway. It became a church, then in 2012 part of the building was converted into a children’s play area named Kid Venture Dome. The upper section of the building has reopened as the Jones Theatre, screening movies and presenting live theatre performances.
