The Bellamy Opera House was opened in 1903. It was renovated into a theater in 1915-1916. In 1926 it was renamed Boyne Theater. It was remodeled again in 1938. It was closed in 2003 following a period screening adult movies. It was converted into a nightclub. By 2015 it was operating as a bar & restaurant.
My parents owned this theater in the late-1960’s for a decade. I have such wonderful memories of the colors and smells of the theater. My sister and I had special seats in the beautiful balcony. I know the theater ran in the early days of cinema, and we inherited many fabulous antique movie posters from it. Original marquee remains there, still. Some rebuilding has taken place in the box office. [Lisandrea Wentland]
