This 1920’s theatre was formerly a speakeasy, and is rumoured to have some hauntings dating back to those days. The most common apparition is a gangster who was shot dead during a fight on the premises, and has been seen by theatre patrons and staff alike. The second apparition dating back to that era is a dapper man in a pinstriped suit, who has been smoking outside the male restroom. When staff go to remind him that there is no smoking allowed, he blows a puff of smoke and vanishes, leaving the staff bewildered and confused. The third and final haunting of the building is a graduating teenage girl who fell from the stage area and broke her neck. Nowadays, visitors have reported seeing a headless woman in a white dress dancing alone on the stage after productions.
