Previous Names: Visalia Theatre
It’s hard to believe that this theatre, with its rather ordinary exterior, was designed by famous theatre architect S. Charles Lee. Opened in 1949 as the Visalia Theatre, showing John Wayne in "She Wore A Yellow Ribbon," its Quonset Hut style auditorium with a lamella roof originally seated more than 600.
Today it pales when compared to the well-known Visalia Fox Theatre, four blocks away, whose architects were Balch & Stanbery.
Since 1992 the Visalia Theatre has been renamed Main Street Theatre and has been home to the family-oriented Enchanted Playhouse whose mission is to "Enchant, surprise, excite and amuse audiences, young and old." The theatre is also available for rental to the community.
