History
Designed by the renowned architect John Eberson, the theatre has been a fixture in Kalamazoo since 1927. The first acts that frequented its stage were opera, dramas, big bands, ballet, dance reviews, stage shows, and movies. When it closed in 1982, local arts groups and city officials rallied for its preservation and legacy, finding a solution through the Hinman Company, who bought the building in 1985. The company dove into further renovation and worked to preserve its history. Currently, the theatre is a part of the League of Historic American Theatres, meeting its requirements of a 50-year-old historic theatre that has a preservation-worthy architecture, importance in American stage and screen history, and can be used as a performing arts facility.
