Kallet Civic Center

Opened as the Kallet Theater in 1938. I don’t know the year that the Kallet Theater stopped being a movie theater but it was still open in 1971. After closing, it became a skating rink. After sitting vacant for a number of years, the Greater Oneida Civic Center Inc. leased the building from the City of Oneida in February of 1983 and began renovating the building. The Kallet Civic Center opened in April of 1983.

The architects of the Kallet Theatre in Oneida were Bley & Lyman (Lawrence Bley and Duane Lyman), according to an Libbey-Owens-Ford ad in Boxoffice, November 12, 1938. This might have been Bley & Lyman’s only theater. The ad is the only reference to them I’ve found in Boxoffice, and all the Internet references (there are a lot) are about non-theater buildings.
