Grand Theatre

The Grand Theatre with its fantastic Art Deco-style marquee and vertical sign (on a far older building) still shows movies on weekends. It was opened by 1930 and was undergoing renovations in 2023.

As a child in the late 50s and all through the 60s I remember so many wnderful times at the Grnd Theater in Oakes. Every saturday night we went to the movies while the parents went to the Oakes Cafe for diner and then to the Arc Lounge for cocktails. I remember that theater being huge. And there were paintings on the walls, which I can’t remember what they were of. But I do vividly remember the creepy bathroom that was down some stairs. I’m almost sixty years old now and realize that it wasn’t as big as I remember it, but the memories are still so vivid. I saw some great movies there and have alot of summer memories of that wonderful movie theater. Are there any photos of the inside of this place???would love to see them. So glad the theater is still in opperation. Ron Swanson

Someone was advertising in the classified section of The Moving Picture World in late 1913, seeking to buy a movie theater in a small town west of Chicago. The address the advertiser gave for responses was Grand Theater, Oakes, N.D.. The building in the photo does look old enough to have been around in 1913, so it might have been this same house.

No website. Movie showtimes are listed on their Facebook page.

Looks like the Grand is under new ownership, and currently undergoing a massive remodel (thanks to lots of fundraising).
