Previous Names: Nowland Opera House, Hippodrome Theater
The Broadway Theater began as the Nowland Opera House in 1893. In 1912 the name was changed to the Hippodrome Theater which had vaudeville shows and motion picture presentations. On January 14, 1917 the Hippodrome Theater burned down. It was rebuilt the same year. In 1924, the theater was leased out to some local businessmen and completely remodeled.
In 1928, L.B. Wilson and his associates purchased the Hipprodrome Theater. In 1930 it underwent extensive remodeling. At this time a contest was held to find a suitable name for the remodeled theater. The winning entry was Broadway.
The Broadway Theater remained open until the early-1950’s. The building has been demolished and a parking lot is located on the site.
