Architects: Harry G. Carter
Previous Names: Call Opera House
Located opposite the Courthouse. Established in 1892 by brothers Asa and Ambrose Call as a vaudeville and opera house, the opening play was “Gloryana” on February 9, 1893. On September 23, 1916 it converted to movies for the increasing popularity of moving pictures and was eventually renamed Call Theatre. The Call Theatre, suffered a devastating fire on April 28, 1937 from which it never recovered.
There was talk of a new theatre being built, but this didn’t happen, and the Call Theatre operation was transferred to the State Theatre which had opened in 1936 and it was renamed New Call Theatre (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).
