The Citizens' Opera House was opened on October 16, 1888 by a stock company of local citizens. It was built as a ground floor theater, and the stage was said to be “the largest of any between Binghamton and Utica.”
The all-wooden building burnt to the ground in a fire that started in the attic of the building on Friday, June 24, 1929. The fire also damaged the nearby Hotchkiss Inn. It would be several years before William Smalley opened a purpose-built movie theater about a block away from the site of the old opera house, also now gone.
