The Culver Opera House and Theatre opened February 24, 1912 with a live play, “The Heart Breaker.” Though mostly a live venue, the theatre experimented with photoplays and – under new management and a grand re-opening on September 16, 1914 – switched to regular playing of film with live events also in the mix. The theatre does not appear to have transitioned to sound. The venue became a dance hall which burned down on January 17, 1943.
