News About This Theater
The Moore Theatre opened on December 28, 1907 and was designed by architect Edwin W. Houghton, with an original seating capacity of 2,212. It was a live theatre, and in 1917 it was operated by the Orpheum Circuit, becoming the 4th theatre in the city to be operated by that circuit. The backstage area today is one of only a few theatres in the USA which has hemp lines, where the scenery is hauled by ropes.
In December 1975 it became an art house movie theatre and was renamed Moore Egyptian Theatre. It has since gone back to live theatre use.
