Replacing an earlier Hart’s Theatre, this Hart Theatre opened on November 30, 1920 and screened movies until it closed on September 18, 1960 with Bob Hope in “That Certain Feeling” & Danny Kaye in “Up in Arms”.

The theatre was renovated years later, renamed Village Playhouse and opened as a live performance venue in April 1972.

It looks like this group is using the theater for live performances. The status and function should be changed accordingly.

The July 21, 1920, issue of Building & Engineering News had an item saying that the contract had been awarded for construction of a reinforced concrete theater and store building, 118x40 feet, on Main Street in Ferndale for Boyd & Pollock. The project had been designed by Eureka architect Frank T. Georgeson.

This web page at Waymarking confirms that the project was the Hart Theatre. The theater is part of the NRHP-listed Ferndale Main Street Historic District.

Grand opening of the new Hart Theatre was November 30, 1920 replacing the previous Hart’s Theatre. It appears to have close September 18, 1960 apparently at the end of lease with That Certain Feeling and World in his Arms.
