News About This Theater
- Jul 31, 2008 — A return at Center Stage
The Fontana Mummers said that their home was designed by the Boller Brothers in 1937 to look like Frank Lloyd Wright’s Midway Gardens in Chicago. Unfortunately, it stopped being a movie theater in the early 1950’s and has been used for a variety of purposes including an Elks lodge, a skating rink and retail stores.
One of the theater’s notable features is its free-standing Art Deco marquee. It was purchased by the Fontana Mummers Community Theatre, a non-profit corporation, in 1999 and underwent some restoration. The Mummers, who provide live theater to the community, were accepting donations to further the restoration. They left the building in 2003.
The theatre was re-opened in July 2008 as Center Stage Theatre for live performances.
