This theatre goes back to at least the mid-1920’s when it was known as the Gasconade theatre and was still operating as a movie theatre at least into the late-1960’s. It was renovated fron 2004 thru 2007 when it was reopened as a live venue called the Owensville Community Theatre. Seating was originally listed at 525 but is now listed at 360. Should have an AKA Gasconade Theatre.
