The Park Theater is a premier theater, concert, and private event destination in the heart of downtown Glens Falls. The newly renovated century-old theater holds a long and storied history within the historic town of Glens Falls:
The Park Theater Opened its Doors
The Park Theater first opened its doors on December 23, 1911 as the first movie theater in Glens Falls. The town gathered to watch silent films and vaudeville shows until the movie theater’s closure in 1935.
The Glens Falls Post Co Era
The Glens Falls Post Co., publishers of The Post-Star, purchased the building and converted it into a printing plant.
Dr. Harold Kirkpatrick
Dr. Harold Kirkpatrick, a local plastic surgeon, bought the building and worked on improving it with hopes of using it as a performing arts center. He rented the space out for occasional concerts and Jerry Aratare operated a movie theater there for a short period of time in 2010.
The Park Theater Reopens
The Park Theater reopens into a state of the art performing space with Doc’s Restaurant downstairs.
