Hardacre Theatre

The Hardacre Theatre, located in the small town of Tipton (pop. 3054), originally opened as an opera house in 1916, but just three years later, it began to show motion pictures.

The Art Deco style house was renovated in 1991 and movies are now shown at the theatre six nights a week. The theatre is locally owned and operated. It was closed in August 2013 and renovations/restorations continue in 2024.

Kudos to a local preservation group that has provided the funds to enable this nearly century-old little gem to move into the age of digital projection: View article

The Hardacre Theatre has been closed since 2013. It’s undergoing a total restoration/renovation which if goes according to plans take 2 years to complete and cost an estimated 2.2 million. The theatre building consists of two second floor apartments and 2 storefronts. The two apartments have been remodeled and are rented. Renovations for the theatre indicate one of the storefronts will be incorporated to the theatre as an enlarged refreshment stand. The theatre has a balcony and will have recliners when renovations are completed. Thanks for the tour.
