Hawkinsville Opera House

You are here Home  > Theaters >  Hawkinsville Opera House

Construction on the Hawkinsville Opera House began in 1907, and the 576-seat theater has been used as a makeshift church and a temporary movie cinema when those respective buildings burned. Now it is a historic theater and possibly home to a ghost, who is said to dim the lights at inopportune times.

  1. I’m with Paranormal Society of Middle Georgia and a couple of years ago we can duct in an investigation at this location. The Opera House in Hawkinsville, Georgia is indeed haunted. We capture disembodied voices and the lights were flickering on and off by themselves which is one of the clean hauntings. But what really convinced me was my name being called and no one was in there at that location which was the speaker room up the spiral staircase.
    If you use on Facebook search Paranormal Society of Middle Georgia and the Opera House in Hawkinsville you will pull up the video.
