The Lakeside Theater was built in 1911 by the town residents and used originally as the Town Hall. Converted into a theater in 1940, it functioned as such until the 1960’s. In 1997, the Maine Ave. Revitalization Association [MARA] rebuilt the marquee and painted the facade. Octad One Productions, a theater group from College Grove, restored the interior of the theater. The name was then changed to Lakeside Playhouse and later to the Manhattan Playhouse.
