The Davis Theatre is located on S. Main Street at E. 20th Street in downtown Higginsville. It opened on April 17, 1934 with Lanny Ross in “Melody in Spring”. It had 750 seats. In around 1942 it was taken over by Commonwealth Amusements, and they continued to operate it until at least 1950.
Later converted into four screens, the two story front is in brick. It has a rectangular marquee with a nice sized upright in red neon. This is a well preserved theatre and ran first run attractions until it was closed on September 28, 2012 and remained closed in 2013. It had re-opened by August 2018.
