General Information:

AKA Quonset Hut Theater

This Quonset theater was built in 1946 Lowell E. Hoag who had worked for Clark Equipment. At that time it also included a restaurant, beauty shop and "cry room" for the kids. Capacity was given as 350-400 seats. As of 1954 Walter Bridge took over operating the theater after it had been closed for a time. I don't find much after that until the current day. The facility is currently operating as the Quonset Hut Theater featuring live plays and such.
