News About This Theater
- Dec 9, 2010 — Hotel chain to help spiff up Rexburg theater
Opened on February 28, 1917 as the Rex Theater and through the years had various owners and operators.
In 1976, when it was called the Romance Theater, it was damaged by the Teton Dam flood. The theater, after being rebuilt, was renamed the Westwood Theater and finally sold to Carmike Cinemas in 1988.
Carmike Cinemas, which has another three-screen theater in this town of 14,300, operated it until closing it on March 29, 2001. In around 2006, it was reopened as a community arts center, and in 2011 was renamed Romance Theatre again.
Although it is not on the National Register of Historic places, it is near the Madison County Courthouse which is on the Register.
