in 1936 the Opera House was known as the Park Theater showing motion pictures, this continued at least until the very late-1950’s. If you look on their facebook page it shows a photo of the Opera House as the Park Theatre.

No, wait. The Facebook page has a link to this web site, but it has only a request for donations and volunteers, and a notice of a board meeting and an open house, both held last month. Whether this will eventually become an official web site or not I don’t know.

It appears that the Opera House is now using a Facebook page as its only web site.

This is from Boxoffice magazine in July 1957. Park Theater should be an aka.

EL DORADO SPRINGS, MO.-Mrs. Walter Lovan, operator of the El Dorado Drive-In, has purchased the Park Theater equipment from Ray and Dorothy Brown. In addition, the building at 105 N. Main St., now occupied by the theater, has been leased from Mrs. Fern Williams and son Edward.

In 1936 Mrs. Lovan and her husband, the late Walter Lovan, became managers of the Park and operated it successfully for a number of years. In 1954 the El Dorado Drive-In was built on Highway 54. Plans are being made to redecorate the Park Theater in the near future. The house is to be closed temporarily and an announcement made concerning the reopening date.
