The theatre was created in a former store by G.F. Hesselgrove. Showings were usually Wednesdays and Thursdays. It has been reported that lights in the town dimmed when movies were shown because of limited power.

The projector had too long a focal length for the building so a box was added to the northern side to house it. That “box” is visible in the photo I’ve uploaded.

I was unaware that Coupeville had ever had a theater. I grew up about 10 miles away in the 1960’s/70’s and thought that Oak Harbor and Langley had the only two indoor theaters on the island. There is also the Blue Fox drive in, just South of Oak Harbor. In addition, there is a theater on the Navy Base but it is not open to the general public.
