The building housing the theatre was originally built by L.P. Byrd as Moore’s Livery. In 1934 it was altered for use as a motion picture theatre. It burned in the late-1930’s and was rebuilt as the Gilmont Theatre and lasted until 1954. It was renovated in 1955 to become the Town Hall. The theatre seated 290 and was operated by Everett Enterprises until closing. Today it is still being used as the Town Hall.
