During a performance in the 1880’s, a woman from the audience disappeared during a magic show production. Ever since then, there have been reports of the theatre being haunted. The ghost a glowing woman has been seen in the theatre basement, objects move around by themselves, and screams come out of the empty theatre.

  1. Hi, I was doing community service one time cleaning the stage and basement of this theateR when we were down stairs we heard a woman talking down the corridor but when we went to look there was no one there. We went back to moving stuff and heard her again. When we looked over we saw a shadow figure standing there then dart behind the wall. We also heard her again when we were back stage cleaning the dressing room.

  2. Used to go there back when it was Max Blades before he was kicked out and it became the film festival center and then Max Bought it and remodeled it. Meet Jerry Vandyke after seeing his film what is eating Jerry Vandyke. Never seen anything but peeling paint before the new remodel.
