    This little theatre open it doors back on October 2, 1916. It is the oldest continuously operated facilities in Fillmore today. If walls could talk it, would boaster the days of vaudeville and moved right along into the important era of big pictures until the 1920s, though the first feature-length film appeared in 1903. Long before the movie palaces of the 1920s, were developed, arcades, storefront theaters and nickelodeons were serving up moving picture technology to the public.

    Then on January 17, 1994, the Fillmore Towne Theatre was seriously damaged by the 6.9 Northridge Earthquakes. Portions of the unreinforced brick walls and parapets cracked, leaned and fell, causing city officials to quickly close the building. Yet a group of citizens knew how important historically and architecturally the building meant formed the Save the Towne Theatre to assisting raising funds to restore and reopen the theater in November 1996.

    This wonderful building is not that old, but the city took much pride in making it sure the style fit in with the rest of the historical era buildings. Has a lovely little court yard to stroll around in and a wonderful fountain that is a beautiful center piece to it. It is right next to the rail way station and the Red Caboose and park.
