The North Bend Theatre opened its doors on April 9, 1941 with a showing of the movie, "Tall, Dark, and Handsome" starring Cesar Romero and Virginia Gilmore. Since that day in 1941, the theatre has continuously operated as an independent movie theatre showing first-run movies, classic movies, and hosting many community events such as film festivals, Jazz Walk, Blues Walk, local fundraisers, free Summer matinees, and independent filmmakers' screenings. In 1999, the Slover family undertook a major renovation in keeping with the Art Moderne style of the building. The Walker family bought the theatre in 2006 and brought in the popular mountain film festival that continues to run annually October through December, and in 2013, with the support of the community, brought the theatre into the digital age so that it could continue to bring Hollywood blockbusters and other digital presentations to the community. On April 1, 2018, the Burrows family became the new owners of this beautiful historic landmark. Their mission is to care for and thoughtfully improve the building; and to offer a variety of entertaining events so future generations continue to create fond memories and love their local hometown movie theatre.
