Virginia Theatre (Official)
Architects: George L. Elliot
The Virginia Theatre was opened on July 14 1922. African-Americans had their own separate entrance and were seated in the balcony. It was closed in 1994 and had become increasingly derelict.
In October 2020 it was acquired by the city for $1.00 and in August 2021 funds to the value of $2 million were supplied by the city to be used for renovating & restoring the cinema and were approved. The Virginia Theatre reopened on July 14, 2022, the 100th anniversary of its original opening in 1922. It is now a live music and theatre venue which also screens classic movies.
