The Granada Theatre opened January 2, 1928 with Mary Astor in “Rose of the Golden West”. A Wurlitzer 2 manual 7 ranks theatre organ was installed which was opened by organist A.A. Ritter. A 1932 City Directory gives an address range of 537-543 Commerce Street for the Granada Theatre. The theatre was modernized in 1949 to the plans of architect E.H. Geissler. The Granada Theatre was closed March 3, 1977.
The Wurlitzer organ was removed from the building many years ago and was first installed in the Evans Theatre, IN. It was later removed to be installed in the Keith-Albee Theatre, Huntington, WV. When the original Keith-Albee Theatre Wurlitzer was found, the Granada Theatre instrument was returned to its original home and was re-assembled in 2015.
Following a renovation, The Granada Theatre was reopened on August 28, 2021.
