The Old Opera House

Website – The Old Opera House

Built in the early 1900s, the Old Opera House opened as a performance theater in 1910 and became a movie theater years later. After the cinema closed, the Opera House became at various times apartments, a tavern, a florist shop, and even a two-lane bowling alley. In the 1970s, the Opera House was restored and once again presents live theatrical events.

If an evening at this historic theater is on your itinerary, be sure to make reservations. Shows often sell out, especially the musicals.
