Two ghosts, one is supposedly a little girl from the time when there was a General Store/Post Office on the location. The second is supposedly a man named Tom. The story is that while it was a movie theater (segregated) the blacks were in the balcony and whites were down in the main audience area. Tom is purported to have been in love with an African American woman and tried to go up to see her. This caused a fight and rumor has it he was later hung in different location by the woman’s relatives. Orbs have been seen, sounds, touches, smells, lights flicker without warning, equipment goes haywire for no reason, props are found in different locations than where they were left. Malevolent presence felt upstairs near dressing rooms and light booth. Creaking/footsteps heard from upstairs when nobody is up there. Several paranormal investigations done and all concluded there is something there.

  1. This Theatre is very haunted, I have investigated it several times. Captured several evps and the theatre seats will randomly flip up by themselves. Very heavy uncomfortable presence in the upstairs dressing room
