The Community Theatre was opened in 1924 by the Knights of Pythias, who met upstairs, and rented out the theatre downstairs. It later became the D & R Theatre. After closing from 1962, it reopened on April 11, 1980, twinned, as the Plaza Twin Cinema. Closed on April 28, 2005, it was reopened by Jeff Brein and his Far Away Productions movie operator company as the Historic Orchard Theater in 2007.
Nice little downtown theatre on the main drag. The top floor of the theatre has a completely renovated banquet/reception hall with ADA accessibility that can be used for rentals like wedding receptions or public meetings. The Historic Orchard Theatre was closed on December 30, 2010.
It re-opened in May 2011. In late-2021 it was renamed Polaris Theatre.
