Theatre in the Grove

Originally opened in 1912 as the Star Theatre. By 1925 it had been renamed Grove Theatre and was equipped with a Marr & Colton 2 manual 5 ranks organ. The former Grove Theatre today is home to the Theatre in the Grove community theatre.

This has been used as a community theater since I think 1969.

I have performed in a couple of plays there. Men’s bathrooms are downstairs. Women’s are upstairs near the old projection room, which is now used as sound and light booth. The stage is fairly large and deep for the size of the building, but since it was built as a cinema, there is little room for things that would be found in a purpose-built live theater. For instance, there is no fly space, no green room, and the dressing rooms are smaller than would usually be considered optimal.
