The Columbian Theatre

You are here Home  > Theaters >  The Columbian Theatre

A great many weird things have been reported in the Columbian Theater: Props seem to move when no one was there to move them, lights turn on and off by themselves, and folks have reported hearing moans, groans, and the sound of someone unseen climbing stairs. A fire alarm once activated for no apparent reason, and reports say tunnels found underground lead to an old mansion in town as well as the morgue.

  1. I was there for the Columbian Christmas extravaganza in 2018 I was downstairs by myself or at least I thought, I heard running footsteps and someone call my name I also thought I figure in the corner and then I ran. I still continue to do shows they are but I have not heard anything else since that night

  2. i know that on the main floor where that rectangle is down stairs by the bathrooms that has a casket under it. AND I KNOW FOR SURE THE BATHROOMS ARE HAUNTED BECAUSE I WAS WASHING MY HANDS AND I HEARD WHISTLING.
