Opened as the Globe Theatre on September 12, 1912, it was completely re-modelled and re-opened on 28th November 1921 as the Blue Mouse Theatre. In 1926 it presented the first sound film to be screened in Portland; John Barrymoore in “Don Juan”. It was closed down for several years between around 1936 and 1940, re-opening in October 1940.
In August 1958 when the owners of the Blue Mouse faced eviction, they took over the Capitol Theatre and re-named that the Blue Mouse, taking the sign from the front of the building and erecting it on the facade of the former Capitol Theatre. The original Blue Mouse Theatre was sold and the building demolished.
