Allen Theatre (Official)
Styles: Art Deco
Previous Names: Hippodrome Theatre, Astor Theatre, Trinity Theatre
Located in the main business district on E. Main Street, the theatre opened as the Hippodrome Theatre in the early-1900’s. In 1929 it was renamed Astor Theatre when it was expanded.
The Astor Theatre played main stream feature attractions until sometime in the 1970’s when it became an adult house showing X-Rated movies. This created a stir in the community and a bad name for the theatre. It closed sometime in the 1980’s.
After a three year gutting and renovation by the current owner, the theatre reopened as the Allen Theatre on September 21, 1995. Live events along with movies now play the Allen Theatre. There is a fairly good history on their web site.
