Originally opened in 1928 as a 1500 seat motion picture and vaudeville Theatre with a 40 foot domed ceiling with twinkling stars, the Theatre enjoyed many years as a premire entertainment venue. After extensive renovations beginning in 1994, the Fountain Square Theatre is once again transformed into a starlit courtyard. The Mezzanine level retains much of it’s original architectural details including a painstaking restoration of painted ceiling motifs.
