Old Opera House

You are here Home  > Theaters >  Old Opera House

Now a museum, with an antique shop as well, the Old Opera House in Arcadia has a number of weird goings-on. One worker tells of hearing the distinctive noise of a crowd in the old auditorium, but of course when she went to investigate, there was no one there. The sounds of children’s laughter and footsteps are heard, and the figure of a young girl has been seen in a second floor corner window.

    1. The little girl supposedly jumped out the window on the second floor . If you go there during the day, there’s a nice man on the second floor who will tell you about the murders.

    2. Certain areas felt like a feather tickling the inside of my spine while other areas felt like a chest suppression. The seating area on the second floor felt like a happy place.

      I just look at the location on Google maps I don’t know why but something telling me zoom in. I don’t know if you can see it but I see a little child in the corner of the window.
