Should be listed as open with website – Was a new build venue launching August 10, 1914. The reference to the Moving Picture World article above is incorrect – the issue is dated November 14, 1914, p. 1917. The local newspaper articles confirm the date.

After “Selma” screened in earl 2015, a decision was made to reopen the historic venue beginning regularly on March 20, 2015 with the film, “Insurgent” and continuing to the 2020s.

The Walton Theatre had opened on August 10, according to the November 14, 1910, issue of The Moving Picture World. The original seating capacity was 500, 122 of them being in the balcony, and the rows were thirty-six inches apart, which was very generous spacing for a theater of that period.
