A beautiful Streamline Moderne structure opened on September 11, 1941. It had a seating capacity for 902. The Marion Theatre closed in the mid-1970’s as a movie theatre and stood empty for 13 years. The exterior is in its original state and looks fantastic. The interior has been restored to a nostalgic 1940’s style and feel. Come check us out when you are in central Florida.
