On January 2, 1939, Commonwealth Theatres took over the Hermo Theatre.

The husband-and-wife team of Mr. and Mrs. C.M. Bassmann opened the Hermo Theatre’s doors on January 26, 1935 with William Haines in “Young And Beautiful” along with the Happy Harmonies cartoon “The Discontented Canary” and the Vitaphone technicolor short “Show Kids”.

On May 31, 1961, the Hermo Theatre closed its doors for three months due to lack of management. With a surprising note, the Williams Theatres chain would later reopen the Hermo Theatre on September 8, 1961. The Hermo Theatre was renamed the Showboat Theatre in 1972 retaining its first-run policy.

The Showboat Theatre closed as a first-run movie house in the early-1980s, and reopened a short time later as a special events theater which also housed live performances and classic movies.
