The Chateau Dodge Theatre opened on October 26, 1927 by the Finkelstein & Ruben Amusements Co. It was equipped with a Marr & Colton 2 manual 9 ranks organ. In the 1970’s there were threats of demolition for a Wells Fargo building but a local group was formed to save the building. It was placed on the Register of Historic Places in 1980. It was closed on October 2, 1983. In 1994 it was remade into a Barnes & Noble bookstore. Barnes & Noble vacated the building at the end of 2014.
The interior is in an Atmospheric style, designed as a Medieval village with stars above. In May 2016 plans were proposed to restore the Chateau Theatre with a 2017 reopening envisaged. It reopened November 23, 2019 as an exhibition space, with a café, retail stores and a space for live music performances.
