The New Logan Theater opened October 16, 1938 with Bing Crosby in “Sing You Sinners”. It replaced a smaller 400 seat Logan Theater, and was built by F. Midelburg at a cost of $150,000. Originally seating 1,300, the Logan Theater is listed in the 1955 Film Daily Yearbook with 1,180 seats.
The New Logan Theater was the first to be built in West Virginia with air conditioning. It had a separate balcony for African-American’s, who also had their own bathroom facilities.
By early-2017 it had reopened as the Coalfield Jamboree Theatre.
