Smoot Theatre

Originally constructed in 1926 by the Smoot Amusement Company for vaudeville acts, the theater was converted to a showcase for films when live entertainment lost the public’s favor.  In 1930 it was sold to the Warner Brothers Company which redecorated the building, converting it into one of Parkersburg’s leading movie houses.
