The Chateau Dodge Theatre opened in 1927 by the Finkelstein & Ruben Amusements Co. It was equipped with a Marr & Colton 2 manual 9 ranks organ. In the 1970’s there were threats of demolition for a Wells Fargo building but a local group was formed to save the building. It was placed on the Register of Historic Places in 1980. In 1994 it was remade into a Barnes & Noble bookstore after its days as a movie house ended in around 1986. Barnes & Noble vacated the building at the end of 2014.
The interior is in an Atmospheric style, designed as a Medieval village with stars above. In May 2016 plans were proposed to restore the Chateau Theatre with a 2017 reopening envisaged. It reopened November 23, 2019 as an exhibition space, with a café, retail stores and a space for live music performances.
