Fedo Theatre

The Pythian Theatre was built in 1928 by an African American lodge of the Knights of Pythias. The building held offices, a restaurant, and a billiard parlor as well as the lodge hall and movie theater.

The Pythian Theatre was renamed Fedo Theatre in the late-1940’s. It served Wheeling’s African American community into the mid-1950’s.
