News About This Theater

The Varsity Theatre was opened November 28, 1923, with 863 seats. The opening movie was “Pioneer Trails” starring Cullen Landis. The Capri Art Theatre opened in the former Varsity Theatre building on May 15, 1970. In the 1970’s it ran adult movies. Last known as the Uptown Theatre, it had been closed several years when it was purchased by its current owner Ibrahim Cisse in 2010.
In February 2014, plans were announced to restore the theatre, to be used for live performances, occasional movies and community events, with a planned re-opening for 2015. It reopened February 12, 2015 as a live music venue and has been renamed Varsity Theatre again.
