This Theatre was opened in Nov 1938. The current Owners are Bonnie & Robert Geddes. The seating capacity is now 250 persons. The Tivoli Theatre has been fully updated with digital projection equipment & sound systems. While the interior & exterior have also been updated, it was done maintaining the integrity of the original Art Deco style.

Mr. and Mrs. Olsenberg will operate the theatre under the name A-M Crest Cinema, “Your cinema in motion.” Daughter Mona will look after the concession. Son Cory, like his father, is a projectionist. The Olsenbergs have two other daughters, Shelley and Lynn ann.

Mr. Olsenberg states renovations to the building include repainting the front. A new sign is arriving. The acoustics will be improved. He plans to run more shows and also a Saturday matinee.

Additionally The Alderson’s owned it late `70s per one comment.
