Located on Washington Square, the 1,217-seat Opera House opened on December 28, 1867 with “Lucretia Borg1a” and presented touring theatrical productions. It became a movie theatre in the early part of the 20th Century.
In recent years, before and after being triplexed, it provided much of the major Hollywood film fare shown in the city and is also one of the venues used by the Newport Film Festival.
The theatre has undergone a major restoration to return it to its original opulence. It was closed in August 2010, to be renovated and converted into a performing arts center.
