News About This Theater
- Sep 7, 2010 — Warner Theatre in Morgantown to Close
Located in downtown Morgantown, West Virginia, this Art Deco style theatre was opened by Warner Brothers Circuit Management Corp. on June 12, 1931 with George Arliss in “Millionaire”. This grand theatre was built with exquisite architectural design and with the interests of the guests in mind, and originally had 1,300 seats. In the mid-1970’s it was tripled, with a wall in the middle of the main floor (orchestra) seating dividing it into two auditoriums, and the former balcony is the third auditorium.
Round Table Corporation purchased the theatre in 2004 with the intention of restoring it to its original condition and ensuring that a trip to the Warner Theatre remains “A Timeless Experience”.
Sadly, the Warner Theatre was closed on September 5, 2010, screening “The Kids Are Alright” in screen 1, “The Wonderful Whites of WV” in screen 2, and “Dinner for Schmucks” in screen 3. As of March 2012, the theatre remains in very good condition and could be reopened. It was for sale or lease and was purchased in December 2021 for possible refurbishment & use as a movie theatre once again?
