News About This Theater
- May 20, 2010 — Historic Dodge Theater to sell in June 24 auction
The old Dodge Theatre is an architecturally ornate movie house, complete with a balcony. It opened in 1929 and was once known as the Fox Dodge Theater. The Dodge Theatre’s claim to fame is that it held the premiere of the Errol Flynn movie “Dodge City” in 1939.
Although I didn’t visit it until the early-1980’s when I was 5, I remember thinking that all movie theaters were supposed to have curtains and balconies and chandeliers like the Dodge Theatre.
It closed in the late-1990’s after it had been renovated and reopened a few years prior.
On June 24, 2010, the theatre, currently seating 664, was being put up for auction.
