Grand Theatre
Ellsworth, ME
The Grand Theatre opened in 1938, combining Art Deco and Streamline Moderne elements. The theatre closed in 1950. In the late 1960s, it was used as a boxing ring. By 1974, it was headed for demolition. Through community efforts, it was restored and reopened as a performing arts center in 1975. These photos are from 2009. In 2012, the marquee was restored.
