Seeley Theatre (Official)
Architects: Edwin Walker Houghton
Previous Names: Seeley Opera House, New Seeley Theatre
The 713 seat Seeley Theatre opened November 24, 1913 for stage shows, vaudeville and the new silent movies. It became the only motion picture house in Pomeroy. In the early-1950’s the original box seats in the auditorium were removed to accommodate a larger CinemaScope screen. Later in the 1960’s, the lobby was given a more modern look and the old stage area, long out of use was walled off to house a refrigeration and repair shop. The Seeley Theatre returned to live performances and hosted shows produced by the Civic Theatre group.
Listed at the Seeley Theatre today is the Actor’s Trunk, which is open featuring vintage movie and theatre memorabilia as well as screening movies. This historic theatre has many unique features, including it’s own ghost.
