Inscription.  The Church Hill Theatre was built by Elwood F. Coleman in 1929 for use as a town hall. Movies came to the town in 1935 when motion picture equipment was installed in the building. The structure was severely damaged by fire in 1944, and repairs included the installation of an Art Deco interior. The theatre closed in the late 1970's, and in 1985, a non-profit group purchased the building and saved it from demolition. Today, the Church Hill Theatre is being restored and now brings the performing arts to the county. The original projection equipment is on display in the theatre lobby. Call for production information and schedules.
